Japanese Possible Sekiguchi Ichimatsu 1970's Vintage Doll With Silk KIMONO NWT

This doll was given to me as a gift in the late 1970s from a friend after a visit to Japan. The doll has been displayed and protected behind glass in a case ever since. Never played with or used as a toy. It has the original tag.

Her head, arms and legs are made of a vinyl material, with a soft stuffed cloth torso. Her silk brocade kimono is salmon color with darker color obi sash. I think these dolls are fairly rare as I can only find a few similar online. THE DOLL IS 13 high and but for natural age fading and some dust, otherwise she is in the same condition as I received her in 1979. Who is the Doll Artist in Japan from 1960? He reproduced the Traditional Japanese Dolls called Ichimatsu these are the Dolls Japan gave as a Gift to The United States as a Friendship & Peace Dolls I believe after WWII. Sekiguchi reproduced them in the 1970 s into Plastic&Vinyl because the Traditional Ichimatsu Dolls were made of Gofun(oyster shells)or Bisque and therefore breakable, chipped easily, the paint wore off, etc. She might be an Ichimatsu by Sekiguchi but I can't read the tag, which is in Japanese. Comes from a smoke free pet free home. The item "Japanese Possible Sekiguchi Ichimatsu 1970's Vintage Doll With Silk KIMONO NWT" is in sale since Tuesday, April 04, 2017.
