We offer 7 nice vintage traditional Japanese kokeshi. Many strains are represented inclusing the Zao strain, the Tsugaro strain, the Yamagata strain, the Sakunami strain and others. All kokeshi are signed by the artisan.
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.
The heights of the kokeshi in this lot range from 10,5 cm to 30 cm.
More information about traditional kokeshi can be provided after purchase.
