This lovely doll is the largest in this series and celebrates the Winter Camellia while retaining the wonderful character of the Enju wood. The hair decoration, topped with a bold ‘Mage’, complements the long, incised Bangs, (‘Bob’) treatment. The face has simple eye details with a small red nose. The figure is carved and burned, with the Camellias delicately highlighted in black pigment. The doll is unsigned. 

Condition: Excellent meaning that the piece retains its original craft/workmanship showing a wonderful-developed patina commensurate which suggests a degree of wear that corresponds to its vintage. It is void of damage, cracks, breakage, or repairs and meets all the standards of the collectible Sosaku Kokeshi.
