Modern Creative Kokeshi, Aida, 9-5/8"

  • Modern Creative Kokeshi, Aida, 9-5/8"
  • Modern Creative Kokeshi, Aida, 9-5/8" Modern Creative Kokeshi, Aida, 9-5/8"

NAME: Modern creative Japanese kokeshi

MAKER: Seiho* Aida

SIZE: 9-5/8" (24.6cm)

CONDITION: Few very minor dents, a large scrape or scratch-like marks on the back and wear to the finish around the neck. A part of the edge of the "bun" had broken off into several pieces during transit and has been repaired.

NOTES: *Seiho Aida is the way this name is translated in a directory issued by a kokeshi association., dated July, 1983. The directory is both in English and Japanese. I have seen the name translated differently (Harumine) but will use this translation as the more accurate one.

Mr. Aida was born in 1926 and started crafting kokeshi in 1947. He is a multi award winning artist. Some of his work is quite unusual and unique but he's also done some very beautiful pieces.

The top of the head and "bun", including the concave top, has the chatter technique. I've heard you have to be quite skilled to do this technique as it is hard to control.

INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS: Shipping on this doll will cost up to US$17 or US$5 over the automatic charge of $12.00 for U.S. addresses. Please contact us with intent to buy so that it can be packed, weighed and the extra shipping charges added to the doll BEFORE the purchase is made.
