This is a beautiful Gumma Kokeshi with a lovely red kimono and black obi. She is made by Masae Fujikawa.
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. Later they became popular souvenirs and real decorative items, for some even collector items.
