Creative Kokeshi Doll by Masao Watanabe "Chigo-sakura"
This Mushin kokeshi doll was made by a Yajiro style artist Masao Watanabe, who won a Japanese prime minister award in 1963 and 1971.
After winning these prises, his works were evaluated and became more expensive.
Today it is very hard to get his work in good condition for this affordable price even in Japan.
You can see its shining and beautiful purple/ red lacquered body.
Great chance to get a masterpiece of Masao Watanabe
Approximately 85*85*240 (W*D*H mm)/ 475g
Most of the items I sell are vintage; they are second hand, old, sometimes very old.
I try to describe and photograph my items honestly, however, if the pristine condition is very important to you, I feel you should be buying from a regular shop, where you can inspect the items personally.
PLEASE NOTE: All my items are sold "as is", with no warranty implied, and that the photos form part of the description, which should be read carefully.
