$55.00

Quantity Available: 1

Inventory Number: 72845

  • Modern Creative Kokeshi, Sadao Kishi, 15-1/2"
  • Modern Creative Kokeshi, Sadao Kishi, 15-1/2"

NAME: Modern creative Japanese kokeshi, named "Innocent"

MAKER: Sadao Kishi

SIZE: 15-1/2" (39.3cm)

CONDITION: Older doll that has darkened with age and has wood age spots. Several small dents and dings on the body, a few in front. The head has mid sized to large dents including three on the chin area. A few small white spots that may be water spots or a varnish aging issue.

NOTES: Mr. Kishi was born in 1932 and has passed. He was a multi award winning artist. He won top prize, Prime Minister Award at least a couple of times including one for this doll in 1968.

The wheat pattern is carved.

I would consider this a "classic" kokeshi. In the early days of creative kokeshi, prize winning dolls were very popular and more affordable compared to today's winners. It's why they tend to be more readily available.

INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS: Shipping on this doll will cost up to US$28.00 or $16.00 in addition to the automatic charge of $12.00 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.
