  • Daimyo Gyoretsu Nodders, Tiny

Nodder 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 tiny daimyo gyoretsu has seven 5/8" samurai nodders. One is missing. There is some paint wear on the top of the palanquin rail. The stand measures 4-3/4" x 1-1/4".

Nicely detailed for such small figures.
