Vintage Japanese Kokeshi entitled: Akikusa | Autumn” by Kato, Masami


Dimensions: 11-1/4"h

This is a rare one-off doll and an exceptionally carved Kokeshi that was created by a talented carver enchanted with tradition. The painted work on the Haori and Obi, and the hand-carved kimono, give great visual and textural qualities to this piece. This elegant lady has a traditional hair design and incorporates an exceptionally large ‘Mage’ in the delicately rendered design. It is a beautiful example of a lady of leisure on an Autumn day. The piece has the artist's personal stamp on the bottom of the doll.

Vintage Condition: Pristine, excellent condition affording the doll age-old elegance. Retains the original craft/workmanship showing a wonderfully-developed patina commensurate with age and unrestored. The piece meets all the standards of Sosaku Kokeshi collectibles.
