Vintage Kokeshi dolls which are estimated to have been created in the late 1970s or early 1980s.
The Kokeshi craft is an ancient Japanese tradition that started as early as the year 1850.
Wood is carefully selected to have the right qualities, the round base-shape is made with a lathe before hand-tools are used to create the finished doll-shape. Lastly the doll is painted with pigments and waxed. Because of this no two dolls are alike.
Kokeshi dolls have become an icon of Japan since they reflect Japanese aesthetic sensibilities with their simple, minimalist yet elegant design.
This largest is about 41 cm high and 12 cm in diameter.
The smaller ones are between 36 and 35 cm tall.
