Kokeshi doll - Creative with pretty river scene - large (31cm)

Product Description

Kokeshi doll from the "creative" era of Japanese doll-making where more detailed shapes and designs emerged.

This is a souvenir doll made for visitors to a particular part of Japan with the region depicted in the hand-painted river/fishing scene on the body with the pictured figure wearing a traditional straw coat.

This vintage piece is turned, scribed and painted by hand and has real character, along with some wear that gives it a great patina. The artists signature is on the body along with some Kanji, probably a poem about this area of Japan.
