  • Vintage Kokeshi dolls are estimated to have been created in the 1960s or 1970s in Tohoku, Japan by multiple artists.
  • Wood is carefully selected to have the right qualities, the round base shape is made with a lathe before hand tools are used to create the finished doll shape. Lastly, the doll is painted with pigments and waxed. Because of this, no two dolls are alike.
  • Kokeshi dolls have become an icon of Japan since they reflect Japanese aesthetic sensibilities with their simple, minimalist yet elegant design. It's a very beautiful lot of traditional Tohoku region kokeshi crafted and signed.
