I’m a big fan of giving old (and often discarded) things new life, and creating something out of salvaged materials, particularly wood. So when I found these little blanks with a Japanese vintage dealer, I was moved to give them a new life. They have been washed and painted or stamped with modest designs that I felt was in keeping with their style. I call them ‘old and new’ because they are vintage pieces with a new makeover.

This little vintage wood doll has been stamped with little bubbles and has her blue hair up in a bun. Her head only moves a little.
She have been finished in two coats of Danish oil for wood and gently polished.

Stamped underneath with ‘nakamura’ characters [中村] in red ink.

Approximately 14cm high.

Please note: THIS IS NOT A TOY and should be kept out of the reach of children.
