Japanese Kokeshi Doll 1
I love these hand carved, painted, vintage, traditional wooden dolls. In Japan they are given as a gift to newborn babies to symbolise love and friendship. They are handcrafted from wood and are handpainted with red, pink and black floral and graphic patterns. They would look fabulous in any room in the house and make a striking display on a shelf.
I have 2 of these for sale. This is for the doll on the left of the photo and the close up photos which follow. Please note that some of the paint has run (mainly at the back) which can be seen in the close up photos but they are still beautiful dolls.
As with all vintage items, this vintage doll is perfectly imperfect and has been previously loved so will show some signs of wear and tear. Please look closely at the photos for more details.
