Sosaku Kokeshi by Matagoro, Kiyomi entitled: "Sho-Chiku-Bai | Good Luck"

This doll is made of Cedar, and is inspired by the first Matagoro style. Shown is a lathe-turned doll made from one piece of wood in a traditional bell shape, i.e., Nemariko style, having the Kimono enhanced by the natural wood graining. The obi depicts the three symbols of ‘Sho-Chiku-Bai’. The hair is starkly black with red highlights.

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.
