Narugo Traditional Kokeshi, Ishihara*, #2

  • Narugo Traditional Kokeshi, Ishihara*, #2
  • Narugo Traditional Kokeshi, Ishihara*, #2

NAME: Narugo Japanese traditional kokeshi

MAKER: Hideo Ishihara* SIZE: 12" (30.5cm)

CONDITION: Excellent

NOTES: *Yes, 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 am thrilled to be able to offer one of his Narugo. The shape is Narugo, the design is close enough but the face is certainly unique. I don't believe he made Narugo but for a couple of years in the 50's. Certainly it is not a common offering.
