Large - Good condition

Stand: Some dent and scratches. The raw wood you can see in the picture has disappeared with oiling/waxing. The spots will return as the wood dries out. Apply a good wood oil to keep the wood hydrated.

NOTES: Mr. Yoshida was born in 1948 and has passed much too soon in 2007. He started his career in kokeshi crafting "late" in life in 1978 under Insosuke Kobayashi. He won multiple awards including the Prime Minister prize.

His dolls are extremely hard to find, expensive when you find them and always with a very fine art/craft quality. This set is no exception. Never have seen it or any close to it before. High end - outstanding! The ovals are carved as well as the hair, sleeves, obi, nose - everything. The stand has small pegs, the dolls small holes, to keep everything in place.

US customers: It will be our option to ship parcel post or priority or in several boxes depending on where they are going.

INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS: Shipping on this set will cost up to US$121 or US$71 over the cost to mail in the U.S. (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.
