Pretty Little Japanese Doll

Antique, turn of the last century Japanese doll still dressed in her original silk kimono.  She's had an interesting life, first coming to The States as a gift by a young Japanese man for a young girl.  This little sweetie now shares a home with that young girl's great-granddaughter.
