Nemariko


Descriptive qualities:

Ranging in size from 1-1/2” to 6-0”, these dolls are a substrain of the Narugo family. As you will notice, they differ from the Ejiko dolls by being taller than they are wide, and are far more limited in the patterns used on the body. Chrysanthemums, maple leaves, and camellia blossoms are the main motifs. All of them are similar in facial features, and while they are always made of one piece of solid wood, the head will turn and squeak, just as their larger sisters do. They are never hollowed out to contain toys.
