  • Modern Creative Kokeshi, Watanabe, 20-3/4" #73126 Modern Creative Kokeshi, Watanabe, 20-3/4" #73126

NAME: Modern creative Japanese kokeshi

MAKER: Masao Watanabe

SIZE: 20-3/4" (52.5cm), head diameter 7-3/4" (19.6cm), weight 8.75lbs.

CONDITION: Older doll with some difficulties. The head is no longer attached. It should be glued for safety reasons but will remain unattached for easier shipping. She has darkened with age and there is a hairline crack on the back of the head. Looks like it was filled in at one point which means it existed at the time of manufacture. As cracks tend to do, it is extending out from the middle of the wood which is the middle of the head.

There are some dents, dings, scrapes and/or scratches but nothing significant. From the front, no issues can be seen except perhaps 2 1/2" dents on the face. One is on the lower left side and the other on the right side.

NOTES: The name of the doll is Saishu (彩秋) meaning Autumn or Autumn colors. The design is all carved.

There are many versions of this doll with the same name. This one is probably the largest one made. I have a 16" in box currently listed and will be listing some shorter ones soon. The shorter ones are more cylindrical.

Mr. Watanabe was born in 1917 and passed in 2007. Winner of many awards including top prize, the Prime Minister Award several times.

U.S. Customers: Estimated shipping is $52.00. You may be charged up to $15.00 upon checkout but the balance will be at no extra charge.

International Customers: Estimated shipping is US$100.00. You will be invoiced for the difference between actual cost, - less shipping paid with order, - less the U.S. shipping cost.
