Usaburo Kokeshi Doll "Shiiki-no-uta" Japanese Traditional Vintage Handcraft
This kokeshi is Shiiki-no-uta 四季の詩 which mean "A song of for seasons" in Japanese.
Each little egg-shaped kokeshi represents each season.
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.
Please check the photos carefully before purchasing.
