An exhibition of American dolls made between 1830’s and 1930’s, collected by journalist and author Kei Kobayashi, are on display at an exhibition on the 6th floor of Mikimoto in Ginza. The exhibition by Kobayashi, who has researched hand-made Americana, is open from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m. until Dec 6. Entry is free.
This doll is wearing “Lee” denim overalls to advertise “Lee.”
Those dolls are for Campbell’s soup ads.
There are many other historical American dolls in the exhibition.
