This adorable little boy is a *hakata bisque ceramic doll probably from the
1950s - 60s. He's holding a yellow gourd, probably for sake. He may have been
holding something in his other hand because there are two holes (not noticeable
standing on display.) You could put a small cork in that hand that is meant to
fit in the gourd.

He's wearing a short navy blue kimono with a yellow sash (obi) tied at the
back. There's a leaf design on the front and back painted in gold. He has such
a sweet expression on his little face. Look at the lovely, finely-painted eyes.
He measures about 10 1/2" (27cm) tall on a wood base. The base has little
"feet" and is 7" (14.5cm) across.

The doll has a screw on the bottom of one foot that fits into a hole on the
wood. It may not have been the original base because the doll doesn't stand
upright when inserted (thus the REDUCED PRICE). I just put a small rock under
his chubby little left leg to straighten him up (see first photo.) Or maybe he
was meant to be leaning over pouring sake into a sake cup or pourer. You could
put a sake cup or pourer there if you like that idea.

There are some wear markings on the front and back, mostly on the white bisque
(see photos) and he has lost some red paint on this mouth (probably easy to
correct if you have some matte white and red paint and a small brush.)
Otherwise he is in good vintage condition - no chips or cracks. Bisque, btw,
has a matte finish as opposed to china which has a shiny finish.

This doll would make a nice addition to any doll collection or a cute
stand-alone display. This is not a toy for a child.

This CANNOT BE COMBINED with any other listing because if its unusual shape
and size.

*Hakata ningyō are traditional Japanese clay dolls, originally from the city
of Fukuoka, part of which was previously named Hakata before the city merger in
1889. The dolls are made using clay found near Hakata, formed into a human
figure, fired unglazed and then colored with clay paints. Originating in the
17th century, they became very popular at the Paris Exposition in 1900, and
when American soldiers brought them back from Occupied Japan after WW2. They
can be very elaborate and I've seen them online for hundreds of dollars. These
hakata dolls are not as readily available as the fabric-covered kimekomi dolls
(also listed in my shop.)

Be sure to check out my other Asian figures and dolls in the section
"International Dolls and Puppets."
