NAME: Modern creative Japanese kokeshi pair, signature board (not pictured), stand, original box

MAKER: Kouson Sato

SIZE: 7-3/8" & 6-5/8" (19 & 17cm). The diameter of the male is 4-3/8" (11.2cm). The stand is about 9-3/4" x 5-3/8". Weight is 4 pounds, 12 ounces.

CONDITION: Two dents on each body. They do show signs of age. The heads have quite a few age spots on the face and in the mouth. Eventually, the whole thing will darken.

The box is a little battered. The paper label is half missing.

NOTES: Ms. Kouson's kokeshi faces are usually easily recognizable. They are soft and gentle looking. This pair is quite different but is probably her best known and loved dolls. She has been making them for over 50 years and are patented. They are made in two pieces and looks to be of two different types of wood.

Everyone should have a pair or two of these laughing dolls around as they make you smile.

INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS: Shipping on this set will cost up to US$65 or US$50 in addition to the automatic charge of $15.00 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.
