NAME: Narugo Japanese traditional kokeshi

MAKER: Hideo Ishihara* SIZE: 11.5" (29.2cm)

CONDITION: Couple of hairline cracks on the top of the head coming out from the center of the wood which is where cracks are apt to start. Some fading of the greens on the front. Nothing significant in the way of dents or scratches.

NOTES: *This IS the famous modern creative artist Hideo Ishihara. He was registered as a traditional Narugo artist. His grandfather, Iwataro Onuma, was the originator of the Naruko traditional kokeshi. Mr. Ishihara was trained in Narugo style but found it too confining and switched to creative shortly after. From 1959 through 1969, he won 60 prizes as a creative artist including the prime minister award. He passed in 1999 at the age of 74.

I don't believe he made Narugo but for a couple of years in the 50's.

International Customers: Estimated shipping is US$35. You will be invoiced for the difference between actual cost - less shipping paid.
