Miniature Accessories for Hina dolls by Nanasawa-ya
The Tachibana family has a private collection of 288 miniature accessories for Hina dolls that have been handed down through the generations (recently more accessories have been found, so the total could amount to 400). A high class doll shop in the Edo period called Nanasawa-ya, made almost all of these dolls. The Nanasawa-ya doll shop was famous for their proficiency in reproducing miniatures of every day items.
