Kokeshi Nodder Pair, 2"

Sold
  • Kokeshi Nodder Pair, 2"
  • Kokeshi Nodder Pair, 2"

Classic kokeshi nodder pair measuring 2" tall. Female has one small chip of varnish missing on forehead and one paint chip at her neck.

Classic kokeshi are the most familiar of all kokeshi. They have round heads and rounded body, (a few have elongated bodies) and always wear a colorful kimono with a haori (jacket) or vest. The head is attached via a wooden peg which allows it to nod or turn. They were finished with a coat of glossy varnish. Being 50+ years old, signs of aging such as paint loss, crazing of the paint or varnish, whitening of varnish, scratches and dents are common to these dolls. Unfortunately, the more paint colors used, the thicker the paint and the thicker the paint, the greater chance for the paint to dry out and chip. That is why when a doll has chipping, it always seems to be in the most artistically designed areas.

This product was added to our catalog on Thursday 31 August, 2006.
