Mid Century Kokeshi Doll
The handcrafted wooden dolls from Japan, especially from the northern region, are called Kokeshi. They are given to friends with messages inside them as a mark of friendship. The Kokeshi are unique in their design with a big head and a body, but with no carved hands or legs. The face is established well with paint, while the body is decorated with beautiful patterns in different colors and given a wax finish. The makers’ name is often written on the base of the doll.
