Can someone please help me identify this Kokeshi type red lacquer doll? Her kimono opens into a mirror. She is about 12.5" tall and 4" wide.There are no markings or anything on her. Thank you.

Kokeshi was a cottage industry after WWII, and very common. Darling little figurines, but are not particularly valuable or traceable back to makers. This one looks pretty modern, just by the style.
