In Japan, snowfall is symbolic as sentimentality, love between parent and child, and impermanence to the people who live in Northern Japan. This mother and daughter are wearing ‘Mino’ snow coats emphasizing the beautiful wood used to form the dolls. The natural qualities of wood grain are emphasized on un-ornamented bodies that are composed of three sections, (base, body and head).  The faces are separate insets and positioned for conversation with just eyes to convey emotion. Both are hand inscribed on the bottom, and are finished with a simple wax.

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