Modern Creative Kokeshi, Muhitsu, See no Evil Trio

Sold
  • Modern Creative Kokeshi, Muhitsu, See no Evil Trio
  • Modern Creative Kokeshi, Muhitsu, See no Evil Trio Modern Creative Kokeshi, Muhitsu, See no Evil Trio

NAME: Modern creative Japanese kokeshi trio, See no Evil, Hear no Evil, Speak no Evil

MAKER: Muhitsu Miyajima

SIZE: 6-1/8" (15.5cm)

CONDITION: Each doll has minor dents here and there. See no evil has a large dent toward the left back side. They have darkened with age and look to be in the middle of the next darkening stage.

NOTES: Mr. Miyajima was born in 1929. From 1942, he studied traditional kokeshi under Kichitaro Kobayashi (Yamagata) and in the late 40's, changed to creative. Won many awards including the coveted Prime Minister's prize in 1973.

The heads look like they are made of keyaki. The body, probably pagoda tree wood. Speak no Evil, in this case, is in the middle. They are shaped to fit together.

This trio has escaped me for years. Only see it maybe once every other year, they tend to be very expensive. Of the last couple of sets seen, one sold for higher than this price and the other near this price (by a reseller). If it hasn't hit the market, it will most likely be more than this price.

INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS: Shipping on this set will cost up to US$64 or US$48 over the cost to ship in the U.S. which will fit in a flat rate box (n/c). 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.
