REDUCED from $120 | Vintage Hakata Urasaki Doll of Elderly Couple Eating Fish and Rice - Toothless Old Man With Rice Bowl, Old Woman with Sashimi in Basket.
These dolls have an interesting history. The "so called" Hakata Urasaki dolls were made during the Korean War in Japan under contract with the U.S. Military. They were different from traditional Hakata dolls painted in bright lacquer paints, using more subdued watercolor based flat colored paints that gave a lifelike appearance to the dolls. They were made for sale on U.S. Military bases from 1950-1954 in Japan for soldiers coming and going from the Korean war theater of operations. As a result of their limited manufacture run, unique painting with a clear coating to protect them (allowing the "washable" term to be used), they are now very rare in condition like these, and are a lovely piece of post WW2 history.
Each doll is approximately: 9" x 6" x 4" and made of unfired bisque pottery.
