Japanese Dolls on the Western

Cup of Tea
Japanese Dolls on the Western Toyshelf: The “Jap Doll” – Ningyô on the Western Toyshelf 1850-1940. An impressive collection with illustrations and references that suggest the place of the Japanese doll in the minds of American and European children, and of the adults who bought them toys and moralized those toys. The pin-up fans must see the page with Glamour and Risqué images with Japanese dolls. Amusing site. (via MetaFilter)
