CONDITION: Excellent. Doesn't look like she was ever displayed but there are a few scratches and a small dent on the left side.

The dark spot in the front, at the bottom back and along the bottom are the natural coloring of the wood, just under the surface. You can see several darker streaks on the doll just below the surface as the one in front. The cloud in front was carved and happened to dig into the darker wood.

NOTES: Mr. Iguchi was born 1948 and studied under Master Craftsman, Sansaku Sekiguchi. He is a multi-award winner including the Prime Minister Prize. You can find one of his dolls in the Usaburo Museum and here is an example of another: Iguchi

The design is all carved. The only paint is a little silver at the neck (under kimono) and at the sleeve. She has the carved nose which is usually an indication of a high end doll.

Stunningly beautiful doll.
