I have a kyugetsu...

I have a kyugetsu doll which might be mid-XX century i wanted an appraisal

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

I can send the photos

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

Some labels on the bottom that i cant read and a slab of wood with a japanese calligraphy piece so it should be someone who can read japanese

This is a beautiful doll. Custom made as the mass produced dolls were done smaller, less elaborate and the cases were done square. This doll is a great piece. Wearing the spring moon kimono. She brings peace and beauty to the owner. The plaque in front of her says blessings in the spring. The bottom tags are where she was made and the artist signature is there. The value on the doll in case is 125.00-140.00 and she was made in the 1960s period. Beautiful doll. These were common dolls brought back by service men usually for their wives and daughters. She was a custom doll someone had made to bring back for someone special. Thank you for sharing her. If I can be of further help please let me know.
