"Miyuki" (Hikata Geisha Japanese Decorative Doll)
Master Tasuke
i just found this lovely Japanese decorative "Hikata" doll at my local GOODWILL for around $20.

She is LARGE, i'd say, about 30-odd in. or so.
she is of the traditional "Hikata" variety of decorative Geisha dolls, a Magnificent display piece.

She does have a rather lovely, Serene sort of expression. i think i'll be calling her "Miyuki"

Nice Pickup, looks beautifully gorgeous.

far as i have been able to tell, she dates to around the late-80's/early-90's. she was likely around $1000.00 or so in her day.

today, dolls similar to her, from the same mfr. don't seem to command any more than $200 or so at the most, usually far less.
Her value is definitely in her intrinsic beauty as a display piece. she looks as if she was worth a million dollars, - DESPITE her actual market value -
and is possessed of a beautifully serene facial sculpt. IMHO, that makes her utterly Priceless... Smile
I see, lol. But yeah, dolls like the Dolfie Dream series tend to be kinda expensive, and I saw one or 2 over at Anime Expo in Los Angeles, yeah, that's going to break the budget there, lol.

Also, your posted images are broken/not found. >.>

all fixed now. PHOTOBUCKET can be a pill at times...
It sure can, lol.
That's a nice looking doll Tasuke and for only $20 that was a real bargain.

I like kokeshi dolls. I only have one so far but would like to buy a few more. There's something very appealing about them.
