Kijiyama Traditional Kokeshi, Ogura, 13-1/8"


Quantity Available: 1

Inventory Number: 72452

  • Kijiyama Traditional Kokeshi, Ogura, 13-1/8"
  • Kijiyama Traditional Kokeshi, Ogura, 13-1/8"

NAME: Kijiyama traditional kokeshi

MAKER: Kyutaro Ogura

SIZE: 13-1/8" (33.3cm)

CONDITION: Three light dents on the left side of the hair and a couple of dents on the lower back. Three small dark spots above the obi where the wood feels slightly "flattened" and the varnish is missing. The wood has a crack (wood flaw) on the bottom left side and goes up on the doll, both ends, about 3/4". The wood is not perfect nor is the lathing work (lathe lines) but rarely is perfection seen in any of his dolls. I don't think it was a big concern. I also read but can't confirm, that in his later years, Mr. Ogura's family would make the dolls and he would do art/painting.

NOTES: Mr. Ogura passed in 1998 at the age of 91. He was a very famous and popular artist. His dolls are still very much collected and prized.

Dated on the bottom October 30, 1973. Made from the lovely zelkova (keyaki) wood.
