    I've had this doll since 1985- 1986. I bought this doll from a women who had this doll 50 years prior. It says she was made in Japan by Nishi &Co., LTD. she is in a glass case in excellent condition.

    Fujimusume - This is a scene from a Japanese Kabuki drama. This doll is supposed to portray the Spirits of wisteria power.

    I'd like to get any information.

      Dolls also made by Nishi. There is no direct information on the web about this company.

      Here are links to dolls also made by Nishi:

      http://www.justanswer.com/antiques/6qj97-japanese-doll-purchased-25-years-ago.html

      "I think she may be a Vintage Japanese Nishi Geisha Sakura Ningyo Doll, they are well known for their Silk Dolls. There is not much information on the Nishi Company to be found, possibly because there is no information recorded for public use. They have produced fine quality Japanese Dolls since the early 1900's, it is not known if they are still in business today or not. Your Doll ( circa: 1950's ? ) , is currently valued on the secondary retail market for an average of $300.00-350.00, depending on the condition and where it is for sale at. The best way to store this is to keep in under glass, in a low humidity area, and away from direct light.

      These will typically sell higher in an Antique Shop or Private sale compared to an auction. If you are thinking of selling, I would check with your local Antique Shops in the area to see what yours or one like it would sell for or has sold for. As antiques and collectibles are subject in selling price to different areas across the country..( Larger Metropolitan Areas bring higher prices then Smaller Cities. )"
