Amazing doll set, made in Japan, by kokeshi artist of Usaburo familly and master Sekiguchi Toa.

These 3 hand made dolls are a nice addition to any home interior and will grace any kokeshi collection.

The two dolls on the left are from Usaburo. Mr Okamoto, the founder of Usaburo Kokeshi, was born in Shinto in 1917 and started to make kokeshi in 1950. He invented new styles by introducing techniques that use special machines as well as a manufacturing method using a wheel, and combined painting with a brush with carving and poker drawing methods. Poker drawing is the technique invented by Usaburo that expresses solidity well. Charmed by the beautiful grain of keyaki and chestnut, he paid attention to these trees as new materials of kokeshi, and enthusiastically studied methods for making kokeshi from these materials. He is a winner of many prizes including the Prize of the Minister of International Trade and Industry.

Approx. size: 28 cm and 19.5 cm (11 * 7.7 inches). Both in a very good condition with few little flaws such as small scratches. Vintage dolls, under the body there are the artist red stamps.

The round egg shape doll was made by Sekiguchi Toa (1942-). Son of Sansaku, Toa was born in Shibukawa City, Gunma-ken, and still lives there with his family, all of whom create Sosaku Kokeshi. Winner of many awards, he received the Ministry of International Trade Industry Award in 1978. Since then he has won the Prime Minister’s Award, along with other respected commendations. Toa definitely shows off his artistic, painterly abilities with beautiful creations in colors and make this one unique by its long hair.

Approx. size: 11 cm x 11 cm (4.3 * 4.3 inches). Good vintage condition with flaws: scratches and one flaw on her back. Signed by the artist.

These doll's smile are very lovely.
