Vintage Sosaku Kokeshi doll by famous Kokeshi master: Yamanaka Sanpei (1926-2012).

This amazing craftsmanship will make a statement in any room and is ideal for collector.

Kokeshi are simple wooden dolls that have been crafted for more than 150 years as a toy for children. Japanese dolls, originally from the northeastern region (Tōhoku-chihō) of Japan. Kokeshi doll making is now widely considered to be a Japanese art form that requires a trained and skilled artisan to produce high-quality Kokeshi dolls. They are treasured as a good luck charm.

Yamanaka Sanpei: Born in Yonezawa, Yamagata Prefecture, Yamanaka-san began his artistic career as a photographer, after majoring in chemistry. However, rather than develop a career in Traditional Yamagata doll making, Yamanaka-san used his art background to join the Sosaku Kokeshi movement. A multiple award winner, he won the Ministry of Education Award at the all Nippon Modern Kokeshi Exhibition in 1979.

Yamanaka-san creates wonderfully painted and decorated dolls in many forms and shapes.

The doll is 14 cm tall (5.5 inches) by 13.5 cm (5.3 inches) at the widest. 869 grams.

Good condition with few little sign of ages.

Please look at the pictures carefully to assess the condition of the artwork.
