Vintage Sosaku Kokeshi entitled: “Tazurana on’nanoko | Naughty Sister” by Aida, Seihou


Dimensions: 8-0”h

Offered is a wonderful, stylized geometric form, turned and carved from one piece of wood. Its facial expression represents a young girl, and decorating the top of her head is a “Mage” hair styling with an interesting and offset twist. The element that shows exceptional craftsmanship is the “chattering” technique used to give texture to the hair. Aida-san has designed this doll with three distinct elements: the head, the neck, and the body, each exemplifying the graining of the wood from which it is made. She beautifully tapers the front of the form as with most kimono, and creates a three-dimensional look to the obi.  The doll has an impressed red impressed stamp of the artist.

 Condition:  Excellent, pristine original condition, archival quality because of the uniqueness of the doll. Wonderful form and texture asking to be held.
