I have an antique Japanese doll set of the Emperor's court

Customer Question

I have an antique Japanese doll set of the Emperor's court encased in glass. Approx 2 1/2 ft tall X 2 ft wide. my mother told me it was rare as the dolls faces are all those of children. The shop owner did not even want to sell it to her as she was embarrassed. My mother told her she was a first grade teacher and wanted the set for her class on girls day. I think she paid $25
