I am trying to see if an old Japanese doll in a glass case

Customer Question

I am trying to see if an old Japanese doll in a glass case has any value . . . I believe it belonged to my grandmother, and may date back to around World War II . . . the back of the case has two stickers . . . one says "DOLLS & TOYS YOSHITOKU Asakusabashi Tokyo" and the other "Registered Trademark MADE IN JAPAN". The doll in the case is a young Geisha carrying a pole with 2 water buckets.

Hello,

Your doll dates to post WWII, circa late 1950's at the oldest.

Here is a link for you to a comparable (not exact match) of a doll in glass case that was also made by Yoshitoku that sold for $24.56:
