NAME: Modern creative Japanese kokeshi

MAKER: Issetsu Kuribayashi

SIZE: 11-7/8" (30cm)

CONDITION: Natural wood flaw on the right side of the body and backside which may be similar to a knot. Few small dents toward or on the back of the head, including one on the bottom left side and three small "flat" dents. The head has been glued back in place.

NOTES: The name of the dolls is Hana-Kage or Flower Blossom. Very lovely design with a butterfly and flower. All done by the burnt wood technique with a little staining on the decoration.

Mr. Kuribayashi was born in 1924 and started making creative kokeshi about 1955. He has won multiple awards including the prime minister award several times.

One of the loveliest dolls I've seen by Mr. Kuribayashi but it's one you have to have close at hand in order to appreciate the detail and workmanship.

International Customers: Estimated shiping via 1st class is $35.00. An invoice will be sent covering the difference between actual cost less shipping paid.
