Kokeshi of a Daimyo Gyoretsu. During the Edo period, a law, called "Sankin Kotai" was created to help control the Daimyo (Feudal Lords). The law required every Daimyo to spend every other year in Edo (Tokyo). The travelling procession of the Daimyo household often included over 200 samurai (soldiers) and was called Daimyo Gyoretsu. With hundreds of Daimyo coming or going every year, these processions were common occurrences. This small daimyo gyoretsu has four 1" samurai. Bamboo was used for everything except the dolls. Condition is mint. The stand measures 5" x 1-1/2" with an overall height of 2-5/8". Comes with the box bottom only with 2 corners split.
