Japanese Kokeshi Doll Set – Santa Clause Naruko Ningyo


This attractive pair of Santa figures are in fact Japanese Kokeshi ningyo dolls. The dolls appear to by Naruko-style figures with loose neck joints which squeak when the necks are turned. The dolls are marked ‘Japan’ on the underside which indicate that they were produced in Japan after World War Two likely for export to the USA.
