Prewar trinkets illustrated

Via BibliOdyssey: the Ningyo-do bunko database of illustrations by KAWASAKI Kyosen (1877-1942) of toys, souvenirs, charms, amulets, and whatever else caught Kawasaki’s eye.

Most of the items illustrated are Japanese, as you’d expect, but there are a good 150 or so from elsewhere too. Here’s a German toy that I just had to share:

[German bikkuri-bako by Kawasaki Kyosen]

I know that “respectability” isn’t usually part of the design spec for a Jack-in-the-box, but that is one seedy clown. (“Hey, kid, you wanna earn a dollar? Come out back to my Kombi van for a minute.”)
