NAME: Creative Japanese kokeshi "Senior" Pair

MAKER: Sansaku Sekiguchi

SIZE: 9-3/4" & 11-5/16" (24.9 & 29cm)

CONDITION: The male's head had broken off during transit. There was enough peg surface to reglue. Should it break off again, the peg would need to be changed. (Drill out the old, stick in a piece of dowel rod or bamboo stick).

A few minor to small dents on both dolls. The female has a few short wider dents or scratches just under her hair on the back of the head. They both are darkening with age. The age spots are coming through on the female's hair.

There are a lot of vertical dent like marks in a row over the female's eyes that go more than halfway around the head and on the males chin. This is a flaw in the wood.

NOTES: This is Mr. Sekiguchi's well known pair of seniors. His family site has a set available for purchase, measuring 8 to 9", for 36,000yen or about US$365 at today's exchange rate.

This is a fabulous large pair. Largest I've seen in this style.

Master craftsman Sekiguchi was born in 1925 and is still busy creating his masterpieces. He is a multi-award winning artist which includes multiple prime minister awards and is one of the most known kokeshi artist worldwide.

This pair will ship at no extra charge worldwide. (The cost of international shipping is about US$40.00)

U.S. customers will be refunded the difference between international and national shipping, up to $25 depending on your zone. OR, you may contact us first and the price will be adjusted before the purchase.
