Kokeshi Dolls are traditional Japanese wooden dolls and are renowned as one of Japan's most vibrant and collectible folk arts. They are stunning decor pieces with a calm, peaceful energy that radiates happiness through the aged patina of the timber and the sheer beauty of the artisans hand-painted detailing. 

They are rich in history and spiritual significance. Often the dolls were created as a wish for a healthy child, or to hold the spirits of the ancestors and the energy of the sacred mountains. They grew in popularity and were created as offerings in the serene health spas and natural springs. Many were made by featured artists of the era and vintage Kokeshi dolls like these featured, were signed and cherished.

Vintage Kokeshi Dolls are made from the seasoned wood of the Cherry or Mizuki tree. The traditional form of the doll which is a simple trunk (body) and enlarged head is turned on a lathe, smoothed, painted and then waxed and polished until a wonderful sheen is achieved.
