NAME: Modern creative Japanese kokeshi

CONDITION: At one time, a piece of wood had broken off the hair on the left edge. Can barely be seen from the top, more so from the bottom but not too bad. Other than that there may be a few light scratches or dings. The small piece of wood that supports the stand also appears to have broken and was repaired
