Modern Creative Kokeshi, Kobayashi, 14-5/8"

  • Modern Creative Kokeshi, Kobayashi, 14-5/8"
  • Modern Creative Kokeshi, Kobayashi, 14-5/8"

NAME: Modern creative Japanese kokeshi

MAKER: Inosuke Kobayashi

SIZE: 14-5/8" (37.5cm)

CONDITION: Three dents on the lower front and several little larger dents on the lower left and back sides. Few other light dents and scratches elsewhere.

The whitish film on the hair is either excessive varnish or defective varnish that is discoloring with age.

NOTES: Inosuke Kobayashi was born in 1931 and has passed. Multi prize winner including the coveted Prime Minister award in 1979. My information only goes to 1983.

I have released #72615 back in inventory. You can compare the differences. Her name is "Hidamari" or "Sunny Place" and I'm guessing that this doll is also Hidamari. There are a few differences between the dolls. This doll does not have a three dimensional face/hair but it does have three dimensional sleeves where the other does not. The obi design is different.

Most of the design is done by burnt wood and lots of it including the decoration on her pig tails.

How really cute she is - more like adorable!

INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS: Shipping on this doll will cost up to US$70 or US$40 over the US shipping cost (n/c). Please contact us with intent to buy so that it can be packed, weighed and the extra shipping charges added to the doll BEFORE the purchase is made.
