Fabulous and original pair of vintage creative kokeshi, handmade and hand painted, by the artist Sato Kouson (A.K.A. Komura), one of the few women to make creative kokeshi.

This is a lovely decoration wooden item that will make a statement in any room. It will instantly bring joy and happiness to your home. Perfect gift for couple (weeding, engagement party and couple anniversary...). This lovely doll would also grace any collection.

The calligraphy on the first Kokeshi is 招 and on the second is 福. They therefore complement each other by forming the word 招福 which means Lucky charm (shôfuku).

This original pair of kokeshi depicts a man and a woman with their mouths wide open as if they were laughing or singing. The peculiarity of these kokeshi is that the head and body are separate so you can choose to position the head as you want to change their expressions. They convey joy and snatch a smile from those who look at them.

Recognized as an accomplished artist, Kouson worked out of her studio in Fukushima-ken. Her dolls are easily recognized by wonderfully soft and gentle faces.

The kokeshi are 18.5 cm (7.1") and 17.5 cm (6.9") tall, they are accompanied by a wooden base whose measures are 24.5 cm x 13.5 cm. Weight: 1.9kg.

The piece is signed by the artist.  ❥ Despite being a vintage set it is in an almost excellent condition. There is one insect holes (probably from Japanese beetles) inside the month of the smaller one (visible on the close up picture) and the green paint on the bigger one has some little damages.

Please look at the pictures carefully (zoom in) to assess the condition of the item. The original lid box is missing but there is all the documentations and brochures from the official shop.

🎁 All items are wrapped with a beautiful Japanese fabric at no extra cost.
