RARE Usaburo Japanese Zodiac Kokeshi Dolls Set "Tiger, Snake, Sheep, Dog" Traditional Handcraft
The idea of the Chinese Zodiac came to Japan a long time ago, we have developed our version of its concept of it.
There are 4 of the 12 zodiac animals which were characterized by the most famous kokeshi studio, Usaburo studio.
This set includes "Tiger, Snake, Sheep, Dog" mini kokeshi dolls.
When you are looking for cute modern style kokeshis, you will definitely see this name "Usaburo".
It is the most successful creative kokeshi doll studio.
Since the first great Usaburo trained many artists, Usaburo has become one of the biggest and well-known kokeshi brands in Japan.
Furthermore, as many of the artists from Usaburo won the most prestigious kokeshi award 'the prime minister award', it's hard to get their works for an affordable price even in the secondhand market in Japan.
Very good chance to get an award-winning artist's brand-new kokeshi doll for this affordable price.
*Since this kokeshi was used as an exhibition item, there may be some minor damages.
