NAME: Togatta/Hijiori* traditional Japanese kokeshi

MAKER: Sadao Kobayashi

SIZE: 6-1/2" (16.5cm)

NOTES: *Mr. Kobayashi belongs to the Bunroku lineage. This line has been classified as both Hijiori and Togatta. There is much confusion as to the "proper" family these belong and the reason follows:
Mr. Bunroku Sato was born in Togatta and went to Hijiori to work with Shusuke Sato. He then returned to Togatta. Some researchers classify these has Hijiori, however, some members of this line consider themselves Togatta makers.
