Hijiori Traditional Kokeshi, OLD, RARE

Sold
  • Hijiori Traditional Kokeshi, OLD, RARE
  • Hijiori Traditional Kokeshi, OLD, RARE

NAME: Hijiori traditional Japanese kokeshi

MAKER: 白畑重治 Shigeharu Shirahata*

SIZE: 5-3/8" (13.7cm)

CONDITION: One medium sized dent to the right of the top flower and water damage on the left half of the head. There is a water mark as well as red and, to a lesser extent, black paint run.

NOTES: *The name in Japanese characters is above. I'm fairly certain the family name of Shirahata is correct. The given name is what the translation services said and no information could be found in English on the maker.

Mr. Shirahata passed in 1953 at the age of 66. He belonged to the Sakata Hijiori subsystem. There were 7 artists in this group, none current, with the last one passing in 1984.
