Ichizo original armored doll Samurai Boy: Nobunaga Oda has appeared!
This doll comes from our collaboration with SUZUKINE YUZAN in 2004. Combing our simple, modern and fashionable style with SUZUKINE YUZAN’s tastes, we’ve created a magnificent doll.
As for all our dolls, Ichizo’s authenticity is expressed through the fine details. The flexible joints and realistic face are trademarks of Ichizo quality. This particular doll features a unique fusion of European and Japanese armor design. The abdomen of the doll is modeled after Portuguese and Spanish armor designs and the doll also has a removable velvet mantle, a strong image of Europ
ean royalty. Historically Nobunaga Oda has been attributed with western imagery, due to his progressive ideas about Western technology. This combined with his fearlessness had him nearly end the Warring States period himself.
This beautiful armor is real and handmade just like any armor
displayed in the studio of YUZAN SUZUKINE. This armor was
destined for the realistic design of the ICHIZO doll, since all
our dolls are crafted, painted, and detailed by hand with no
printing or machinery. Therefore each doll has no copy,
making all of them truly special.
For example, the doll’s eyes are carefully drawn, using a blend of six colors. In this way,
there is a gentle expression not found with other dolls.
The detail extends down to the fingers and toes, showcasing
fine craftsmanship. The doll itself is fully articulated allowing
you to display it in any pose you desire.
The Samurai Boy may be small but it’s still very gallant. For those who adore the Warring
States Period of Japan, this doll is for you. This also makes the perfect gift for friends and
family members who love Japanese history or truly fierce samurai!
In Japan, ICHIZO dolls are highly evaluated as art. Adhering to its’ hand-drawn and finishing
techniques, this doll makes a fine addition to any collection.
