Purchased in 1954 by my mom’s late brother, this geisha girl was put in temperature controlled smoke free storage in 1959 when my mom got married.
Her brother was in japan with the service and brought it back as a gift to her for her 14th birthday.
Mom is now 83 and needs to liquidate , so she has to go.
The lamp was built for her years ago as my mom was in the antique business for over 50 years and had many parts to make lamps in the end.
The lamp shade was found along the way and added, so this is not a stock lamp for this doll.
Lamp has new 7 watt incandescent night light bulb.
As the doll has been kept in the dark so long, all the original paint and colors
are very vivid and look like new.
Without high humidity, the dark cool storage has preserved her so well, I would never think she is 70 years old this year.
The lamp age is a mix of an old base most likely 1940’s to 1960’s, old stem and the paper based lamp shade is estimated to be between the 1940’s to 1950’s as well.
The doll measures 17 inches tall and the lamp is 25 inches tall.
