When the cathode ray tube TV set came to Japan during the 1950s, there developed a cultural habit of decorating the tops of these living room fixtures with folk crafts. But as flat screen TVs have taken over, space on top for sentimental displays is at a premium! One company have made it their goal to renew this act of decorative installation with their press-out printed wooden set-top figures especially designed for narrow spaces. This sweet kokeshi design can be mailed as a postcard and then quickly assembled to grace any ledge - a window sill, bathroom shelf, desktop or TV will make a perfect home!
