Vintage Sosaku Kokeshi entitled “Itazurana on’nanoko | Naughty Girls” by Aida Seihou


Dimensions: 8-0”h

Offered is a stylized geometric form representing a young girl going to school in which the body is shown in three sections made from two different kinds of wood. Her face is slightly different having an excited expression with horizontal eyes lifting upwards on the sides and a small defined red nose. The most interesting feature is the “Mage” hair styling has a very different twist. The top of her head has a simple coloration defining her hair. The doll has the red impressed stamp of the artist as well as a notation in ink indicating the date this doll was made and first awarded recognition by the Kokeshi Association.

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.
