$79.00

Quantity Available: 1

Inventory Number: 72067

  • Modern Creative Kokeshi, Sadao Kishi, 15-3/8"
  • Modern Creative Kokeshi, Sadao Kishi, 15-3/8"

NAME: Modern creative Japanese kokeshi, named "Innocent"

MAKER: Sadao Kishi

SIZE: 15-3/8" (39cm)

CONDITION: Six large dents, 2 on the chin, 2 on the back of the head and 2 on the upper left side of the kimono. The other dents are mostly minor to small. Few dark spots on the back of the head where the varnish looks worn off.

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.
