Antique Japanese Oshie Pressed Textile Samurai Showa Shadow Puppet Dolls
A Collection of 15 Antique Japanese Oshie Pressed Textile Samurai Showa Shadow Puppet Doll
The Information I have been able to find about the collection is that they are Japanese handmade pressed textile pictures, known as ‘Oshie’ which is a traditional Japanese craft that can be traced back to the 17th Century.
It normally consists of multiple paper layers in sections of kimono fabric that are hand-pressed together to give a three-dimensional look.
The puppets were used in a Bunraku – A traditional Japanese puppet theatre founded in Osaka in the early part of the 17th Century.
Some are signed on the back.
Circa: Early 20th Century.
There are 15 puppets ranging from 7 inches to 13 inches.
Please state the size and design you prefer when ordering.
The price is for each puppet unframed.
More pictures on request.
We can offer a discount on multiple purchases.
In Antique Condition, some of the puppets are slightly torn and have some paper missing on their heads.
They are very delicate and need to be framed.
More photos can be provided on request.
