Vintage Sosaku Kokeshi entitled: “Ringokko | Rosy Cheeks” by Sekiguchi, Toa


Dimensions: 4-0”h

This Kokeshi won the Prime Minister’s Award and is made of beautifully painted Mizuki, (Dogwood). The doll portrays a young girl with soft red cheeks and wonderfully long hair, similar to hair worn during the Heian period. The forehead is again emphasized, since the Japanese prized beauty, elegance, and fashion. Her clothing is ornamented with Festival elements, and firework themes in bright red, green, and gold elements defining her clothing. A red impression is on the bottom of the doll identifying the piece by the artist.

Condition:  Excellent, pristine original condition, archival quality because of the uniqueness of the doll.
