Vintage Japanese Sosaku Kokeshi with Cherry Blossoms by Yoshiaki

This particular kokeshi is named Machi-Haru, which is written on the side (Spring Time) and has the traditional squared off hair design with kansashi hairpiece on top. She is beautifully proportioned with a gentle face. The decorations on her kimono are pink cherry blossoms, green pine, and bamboo (which are the good luck symbols of the year called Sho-Chiku-Bai. The doll is signed by the artist on the bottom of the piece. There is a small ding on her hair that does not distract from the enjoyment of the piece. Dimensions: 7-3/4” h
