  • Modern Creative Kokeshi, Yoshida, 9-5/8", #1 (#72498) Modern Creative Kokeshi, Yoshida, 9-5/8", #1 (#72498)

NAME: Modern creative Japanese kokeshi

MAKER: Takashi Yoshida

SIZE: 9-5/8" (24.5cm), diameter 5-3/4" (15cm), weight is just over 4 pounds

CONDITION: Ding on her chin and on the back of her head, small dent mid body front. Next to that is a wood flaw under the paint. Maybe the grain is raised in that spot? A few thin vertical lines (not cracks) can be seen caused by the slight unevenness.

Area on the lower back hair with many varying sized dents. Mostly noticeable because of the missing black paint

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 hard to find.

The name of this doll is Tamayura (たまゆら) which I believe translates as "A Moment". Much detail on this doll using the burnt wood style.

This may be one of three in a series. There are two others I have seen often displayed with this one.

This doll will ship to U.S. addresses in a medium flat rate priority box. International customers: This will ship in a flat rate all over the world at a little less cost than regular priority. The price of shipping, not including insurance, is $32.95 to Canada, $47.95 to Australia and most everywhere else will be in between. An invoice will be sent to cover the difference between the international shipping cost less the U.S. shipping (which will not be of much help).

This product was added to our catalog on Thursday 26 April, 2012.
