These were always neat dolls.
Most of the Japanese dolls in glass cases were Geisha dolls, but it's possible they also placed some of their 'big-eye' dolls in glass cases for the tourist crowd.
She looks like a big-eye doll to me. I also believe these were referred to as 'stocking dolls'.
You do not provide the size of the glass case so that information may help finding a similar one.


Here are a few links to see if some of these are similar to your doll.

I would suggest that you post your question on a doll forum site as members on these sites know a lot more about dolls and may be able to help you.
Gather as much information as you can and then you can do research on value of your doll.
