Quantity Available: 1

Inventory Number: 72066

  • Modern Creative Kokeshi, Sadao Kishi, 19"
  • Modern Creative Kokeshi, Sadao Kishi, 19"

NAME: Modern creative Japanese kokeshi "Innocent"

MAKER: Sadao Kishi

SIZE: 19" (48.2cm)

CONDITION: Varying sized dents. The only ones seen from the front are a tiny one at the top of the kimono sleeve and a little larger one under the chin. Several longer dents on the back of the head. The lips are faded.

NOTES: Mr. Kishi was born in 1932 and has passed. He was a mutli 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.

This product was added to our catalog on Saturday 16 April, 2011.
