NOTES: I received many of the same doll in different sizes. They were part of a collection in Japan. There are only signatures on several of the larger dolls. These were probably two sets originally. I decided to take 8 of the best condition dolls and sell them as a signed set. The other group was partially broken as not everyone wants so many dolls.

They do look good all in a row even though there is no picture showing this. Made of the lovely keyaki (zelkova) wood. This is probably Mr. Sasaki's signature design although he also does the famous kite doll.

INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS: Shipping on this doll set will cost up to US$75 or an additional US$55 ($75 less $20 U.S. no charge shipping). Please contact us with intent to buy so that it can be packed, weighed and the extra shipping charges added BEFORE the purchase is made.
