As the title says, I recused this beautiful Geisha doll from a thrift store here in California called Goodwill. Her silver metal sparkly accessories hanging down the side of her face, height, and other factors immediately caught my attention. It was love at first sight! I even decided to name her Himawari (English translation is Sunflower) because of the pattern on her kimono and the hair ornament on her hair.
Any Geisha doll collectors out there who can possibly tell me a bit about her? Things like approximately when it was made, what is the significance of the Samurai helmet in her hand, is she really a geisha or still an apprentice, etc. I have always wanted one of these and I'm glad to have finally own one! I might even start collecting more of these. Haha! Any comment will be appreciated. Thanks!
