Regular price £29.00

A beautiful Kokeshi Doll from Japan - hand turned and hand-painted in a striking red kimono with dragonfly pattern detail. This particular Kokeshi is larger/wider than the usual ones we find and very cute!

Please note: this is not a vintage Kokeshi doll, it is a used contemporary doll that was bought from a collector (hence the lower price compared to the vintage dolls we source and sell).

Styling Tips
Kokeshi dolls are highly collectable and great pieces to add to your eclectic inspired interiors. They look stunning practically anywhere in the home - either as single pieces or displayed in a cluster. They also create a real talking point - especially when you read more about the history/story behind Kokeshi dolls! (more info below).

Condition
In good used condition - colours still vibrant, but may have small imperfections as it is a used (not new) piece.

Dimensions:
Height: 19cm
Diameter: 9cm

Kokeshi Dolls
Kokeshi dolls were said to be guardians of children and keepers of their souls, watching over the children as they grew up. There are varying stories relating to their origin and purpose - some say they were given by talisman to ensure the healthy birth of a new child, others say they were given out to school children as reward dolls by teachers. However, others say they were given to mark the death of a child due to illness, miscarriage or famine - and that the soul of the child remains in the doll. We are not sure which we believe, but one thing we do know, is we love them and we've kept two for ourselves!
