NAME: Modern creative Japanese kokeshi

MAKER: Hideo Ishiara*

SIZE: 8-1/2" (26.2cm)

CONDITION: Couple of small dents on the left side of the head.

NOTES: Mr. Ishihara was born in Tokyo in 1925 and passed in 1999 at the age of 74. He was registered as a traditional Narugo artist. His grandfather, Iwataro Onuma, was the originator of the Naruko traditional kokeshi. Mr. Ishihara was trained in Narugo style but found it too confining and switched to creative shortly after. From 1959 through 1969, he won 60 prizes as a creative artist including the prime minister award.

Another lovely offering. Light wispy plant stems done burnt wood style on beautiful wood.

*The stamp is dark and hard to read but I can guarantee it's an Ishihara doll.

The shipping on this doll will be at no extra charge anywhere in the world.
