in a lovely embroidered box of old trimmings - carefully wrapped in an old handkerchief. As Christine pointed out in her comment on the previous picture, these little dolls sometimes came in a box with various wigs (or masks) they could wear. They also came as novelties in crackers, and a picture book by Clara Bell Thurston called "The jingle of a Jap" and published ca. 1900 had a similar little doll attached by thread to the front cover. There are larger versions as well, and their high-end cousins are the "friendship dolls" presented to the USA by Japan in the 1920s.
