Modern Creative Kokeshi, Kano, 15-3/4" #72692

  • Modern Creative Kokeshi, Kano, 15-3/4" #72692
  • Modern Creative Kokeshi, Kano, 15-3/4" #72692

NAME: Modern creative Japanese kokeshi, original box, signature board in it's own box.

MAKER: Chiyomatsu Kano (Kanou)

SIZE: 15-3/4" (40.2cm)

CONDITION: The head peg was broken when it arrived but I suspect it was broken when purchased. (BUYING TIP: Purchase cautiously from a seller who does not take a picture with the doll in an upright position).

It could not be repaired so the old peg was drilled out and a new one inserted. It should hold awhile, however, I didn't have the strength to drill out the head as deep as it should have been. Should it come off again, it would need to be redone.

Because the head was bouncing around during transit, hitting the sharp remains of the peg, there are some larger dents and scratches on the underside of the head. There are also four shorter but wider dents in one area on the upper right side of the body.

NOTES: Mr. Kano was born in 1935 and has passed but year unknown. He started making kokeshi about 1953. He was a multi prize winning artist including the Prime Minister Prize at least twice (info is only up to 1983).

Gorgeous doll, looks "unused". The design is burnt wood style, filled in with brown paint.

This pair doll will ship at no extra charge worldwide. (The cost of international shipping is about US$35.00) U.S. customers will be refunded the difference between international and national shipping, or up to $15 depending on your zone. OR, you may contact us first and the price will be adjusted before the purchase.
