Vintage 12 Inch Japanese Kokeshi Doll with Unusual Design – 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 doll is a very striking with a particularly distinctive hand-painted illustration on the body, which even makes use of textured paint in places. We’ve not seen one like it. A very collectible kokeshi.
