Kokeshi Omiyage Taki

  Last items in stock

Kokeshis or traditional vintage dolls from Japan in dark varnished wood with "Taki" waterfall landscape.
Omiyage or souvenir kokeshis were handcrafted in Japan from 1945/50 until the 60/70's. They are brought back as souvenirs by Japanese travelers from various cities and regions and are often adorned with a haiku and a landscape drawing representing these different vacation spots. Artisans are often self-taught, or at least free to use their own style, hand-carving and painting wood in a way that differs from traditional kokeshi techniques. Today, such Omiyage kokeshis are no longer made on the archipelago.

Two sizes are available

L: with H 24 cm base diameter 4 cm
