We offer 4 nice vintage kokeshi. They are made by prenominent kokeshi artisans including Miyahsita Hajime and Tamura Chie. One kokeshi is signed by the artisan and dated Showa 53 which is 1978.
Kokeshi are wooden handmade artisanal dolls from Japan. The most prevalent theory is that they appeared during the Tempo period (1830 - 1843) in the mountainous Tohoku region. Initially, they were intended as toys for the children.
The heights of the kokeshi in this lot are (from left to right): 12 cm and 23,5 cm.
Please assess these kokeshi carefully before bidding. Some have stickers and some are worn.
More information about kokeshi can be provided after purchase.
