NAME: Modern creative Japanese kokeshi

MAKER: Seiho Aida* (aka Harumine Aida)

SIZE: 14-1/2" (37cm) including stand, weight 1 lb 3 oz.

CONDITION: A bead on her left pigtail is missing the back half. This is the bead that holds the pigtail in place with a peg which makes it weak from two drilled holes. It can't be seen from the front. Since the picture was shot, it has been glued back into place. She has two white 1/8" paint or scuff marks on the bottom back of the head. The stand she is attached to shows wear on the upper edges.

NOTES: The body is done with grooved lines and the chatter technique.

Mr. Aida was born in 1926 and started crafting kokeshi in 1947. He is a multi award winning artist. Some of his works are quite unusual and unique but he's also done some very beautiful pieces as this doll.


*Seiho Aida is the way this name is translated in a directory issued by a kokeshi association (in Japan), dated July, 1983. The directory is both in English and Japanese. I have seen the name translated differently (Harumine) but will use this translation as the more accurate one.


International Customers: Estimated shipping is US$24 to $35 depending on the weight she can be packed up safely for shipping. You will be invoiced for the difference between actual cost - less shipping paid.
