Sosaku Kokeshi entitled: “Shinto shukujo | Shinto Lady” by Yajima, Shuiho

Dimensions: 11-0” h

The majority of Yajima-san’s figures are tall, tapered and elongated elegant bodies simply stained to delineate the body elements which gives the desired dimension and texture. The head of this doll assumes a tilted position reminding us of the gentle spirit of women throughout the country, as well as giving the doll personality. As with this piece it is not unusual to see Yajima combine woods to give excitement to a doll. Singed on the bottom.

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 noted.
