Information

Yajiro Traditional Kokeshi, Tsuta

Sold
  • Yajiro Traditional Kokeshi, Tsuta

NAME: Yajiro traditional Japanese kokeshi

MAKER: Mamoru Tsuta

SIZE: 11-7/8" (30.2cm)

CONDITION: Large dent to the right of the lips and three large dents on the back of the head. Few other small dents elsehwere. Darkening with age, a little unevenly on the face. The face is darker than the picture indicates.

NOTES: Mr. Tsuta passed in 2009 at the age of 81. The Tsuta family are well known toy makers, although his master and father Sakuzou Tsuta, his brother Fumio as well as Mamoru are/were registered kokeshi artists. One of the sweetest faces, his trademark, I think.


Thanks to HS for the use of the picture. (yjr034)
