Vintage Hand-Painted 11 Inch Japanese Kokeshi Doll – Signed Base
Distinguished by their single wooden body and head, Japanese kokeshi dolls were considered to be good luck talismans as well as child’s toys. Usually made from mizuki or cherry wood, they are hand-painted with bold brush strokes. This is a really attractive example with a painted body in green and red. Her facial features are defined in black with red flowers in her hair. She would look fantastic partnered with other kokeshi dolls of different sizes.
In good vintage condition, there are some superficial scuffs and some fading to the paint. The base is signed.
Please refer to our photos for an accurate sense of condition. Any questions, please get in touch.
Height: 27.5cm (approx 11 inches) / Base Diameter: 7cm
