Engaging Japanese wood figure or vintage kokeshi doll. This samurai is Shimizu Jirocho - most famous Yakuza and folk hero of Japan. His real name is Chogoro Yamamoto.

Shimizu Jirocho (1820-1893) was a historical Yakuza (Japanese mafia) boss. Some of the terms describing him are "outlaw turned hero", "robin hood", "godfather", "gangster boss", "legendary gambler boss but chivalrous". He was also an undefeated swordsman and reformed himself at the age of 48. He helped develop Shimizu Port and is believed to be the first to have founded an English Conversational School.

⛩️ Good vintage condition with a few little flaws. There is a crack on the head, the painting is a bit removed on some parts and the head is a bit moving when we touch it (still glue to the body and stable). Still the overall xondition is good with vivid colors and style.
