NAME: Modern creative Japanese kokeshi

MAKER: Kouson Sato

SIZE: 10" (25.3cm), weight 5+ pounds in box

CONDITION: The doll is in excellent. The snake (inside) has a dent, a scratch and a spot that has the paint scraped off. The inside piece probably gets banged about from going in and out of the doll.

NOTES: Includes original box and stand

First time seeing a nesting type doll by Ms. Sato. This represents the year of the Snake. The ball inside has a fabulous snake painted on it and there are snakes carved out on her obi (belt). The shape and style are quite different from her other works.

Year of the snake inludes 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001 & 2013

Ms. Kouson's kokeshi faces are usually easily recognizable. They are soft and gentle looking. She has been making kokeshi for over 50 years, and I believe she is retired now. Aside from her most known laughing pair, Ms. Kouson's dolls are generally large (tall) with scenery and flowers. Will be listing more of her dolls in the near future including some other hard to find Zodiac animals.
