This large Kokeshi doll measures in at 45cm in height. She is heavily patterned with hand-painted bold flowers around her body. On the base you’ll find Japanese script. She would look fantastic as a floor-standing ornament or partnered with other Kokeshi dolls.
Kokeshi are Japanese dolls from the Tohoku region in Northern Japan. These handmade wooden dolls have a colourful history. They were traditionally made as guardians of children but later became popular amongst collectors.
