We had a whole cabinet full but we did not have one from Japan. On a visit to Japan I asked him if he could find a doll, but for some reason he failed to get one. When he flew back to London he went to the UN office to drop off his papers before returning home. Passing an antique shop in Piccadilly he could hardly believe his eyes, in the middle of the window sat a beautiful Japanese doll. He dashed quickly in to the shop and bought her there and then.
She wears an exquisite Kimono
made of silks and brocade,
and an elaborate hat.
I understand that she is from the Meiji Era, and about 100 years old.
