A lovely example of a 1950s Japanese Kokeshi doll, in excellent condition. Kokeshi dolls originate from the Tohoku region of Northern Japan, an ornamental piece but seen as charms to prevent fires or even ward off evil. The beautiful designs of floral and linear patterns on the kimono would have been developped and passed down through generations and would be distinctive of the region.
This listing is for one doll which has been signed by the artist as shown on the base, we have two available that make a lovely couple!
Makes a thoughtful and unique gift.
