Vintage Sosaku Kokeshi by Sato, Suigai Entitled: "Kaedee | Autumn"


Dimensions: 13-0” h

In the mountain regions, we see a very unusual motif used on Kokeshi, which is referred to as ‘Kyoho budo’, meaning giant mountain grapes. Here we have the grape and its leaves incorporated into the body of this figure with a very simple obi to differentiate the different elements of the Kimono. Signed and stamped on the bottom.

Vintage Condition: Beautifully detailed doll in excellent, original condition. “As is” with some scattered light wear that does not affect the design, and retains the original craft/workmanship. Any discoloration, chipping/cracking, surface wear, or structural damage noted.
