$140.00

Quantity Available: 1

Inventory Number: 72356

  • Modern Creative Kokeshi, Aoki, 14"
  • Modern Creative Kokeshi, Aoki, 14"

NAME: Modern creative Japanese kokeshi w/cranes

MAKER: Ryouka Aoki (not signed)

SIZE: 14" (35.8cm) including her bow.

CONDITION: Inch long vertical hairline crack on the right side of her head and a dent above that. Few other minor dents. Yellowish streak marks run down the back of her head but I think it's the coloring of the wood. Smudge marks and general darkening (wood age spots). The kimono is done in green and has some fading, heaviest in the back and around the neck.

NOTES: This doll is not signed but Ryouka Aoki is the artist. This style doll has a patent type number and cannot be copied.

Ms. Aoki was born in 1931. Her real given name is Toshiko. She started kokeshi crafting around 1958. She's a multi-prize winning artist.

This is the first time I've seen such variation from her most famous and popular design. Done in burnt wood style.

Great doll in this large size. Weighs over 3-1/2 pounds. Shipping will be at the 4-1/2 - 5 pound rate. May ship to U.S. address via parcel post, depending on the distance. International buyers, you will be invoiced for the difference in what is paid with the order (U.S. shipping cost) and the actual cost. This is too heavy to ship 1st class and costs for priority can be substantial. A 5 pound box to Australia is over US$50.00.
