Better late than never.
Anyway, I only have 4 Chinese dolls. I’ve already featured the Chinese Empress Barbie, Mulan, The Lotus Dancer, and now meet Bun bun, well it’s not really her name. I have no idea who she is, so I thought of giving her that because of the hair bun on the right side of her head.
I found her in a thrift store sometime last year. She was inside a plastic wrapped in a paper, no box. I got curious so I asked the clerk to unwrap it for me. The arms dangled and fell off. The clerk avoided looking at me, pretended like nothing happened and tried to push the limbs back. Well, I know it wouldn’t and will not because it’s a string doll. I got worried she might do more harm so I told her never mind, I’ll buy it. I found her interesting because of her costume, body structure and yes, her hairstyle.
I don’t know from what year she was made, she certainly looked old to me.
She’s about 7″ tall
Her body is made of wood. The limbs has wire that serves as hooks to pull them in place with an elastic band.
