Vintage Sosaku Kokeshi entitled: "Yukiko | Snow Maiden" by Kato, Hiroshi


Dimensions: 9-0”h

With just a few brush strokes, the details of decorating are typically Japanese, but very definitive. This is a rather contemporary approach to the ‘Mage’ hair design. Her face is extremely expressive, with her head and eyes tilted downwards are typically Japanese. The Kimono is flipped up on the bottom to expose the undergarment. The piece has a red stamp on the bottom representing the artist.

Condition: Excellent, original condition, with no fading or loss of color and consistent with age. This is a VERY unusual doll, and the piece meets all the standards of Kokeshi collectible Folk Art.
