Product Description
Japanese Court Dolls Notecard Folio
Dolls have long been far more than playthings for the people of Japan. By the eleventh century, no girl from a respectable family was without a collection, and religious observances often included dolls endowed with magical abilities. With the rise of a market for domestically produced luxury goods in the seventeenth century, dolls of different sorts proliferated, many of them exquisite works of art collected by wealthy lords. Members of the imperial family collected gosho ningyo, literally “court dolls.’ These roly-poly figures of children—usually boys—were later presented to emissaries to the imperial court, who in turn began to collect them. In due course, these wooden figures covered in layers of gleaming white glaze were popular throughout Japan.

Contains five each of the following notecards:
Gosho Ningyo (Court Doll: Boy) detail, Meiji period, by an unknown Japanese artist
Gosho Ningyo (Court Doll: Girl) detail, Meiji period, by an unknown Japanese artist
