【CONDITION: Very Good : Pre Owned】
RARE Creative Kokeshi by Master Sansaku Sekiguchi "Tsuya / Ade"
Mr. Sekiguchi is one of the most prestigious kokeshi artists, who is the only certified Master of Creative Kokeshi by the Japanese Government.
He won the Prime Minister Prize three times, in 1969, 1973, and 1975 among other awards.
The Chinese character "艶" has readings such as "tsuya" and "ade". It is a word that expresses gorgeous and moisturizing, sensuality, and smooth luster.
His works are too valuable that it is very difficult to get for an affordable price even in Japan.
Great chance for you to get one of the great master's works.
