Vintage Creative Kokeshi lot of 4 mother and child / baby / babysitter dolls, including one by master Miyashita Hajime (1940-retired) untitled Oshin (babysitter).

This is a great example of Japan’s most unique and distinctive folk crafts. These Japanese wooden dolls are offered, in Japanese tradition, to declare their friendship or love to the person who receives it. They are also souvenir dolls. It's will be a beautiful add to your kokeshi collection or the perfect gift for new mums!

Three pieces are lovely Japanese wooden kokeshi dolls depicting Japanese mother carrying her baby on her back. The last smaller one is very unique as this one holds the baby in front and looks more like a Western Madonna and child.

The one who carries the sticker on the base is by a famous kokeshi artist Miyashita Hajime. Born in Yonezawa City, Iwate, Miyashita-san studied traditional kokeshi making under Yamagata-Sakunami Master artist Kobayashi Kichitaro. He began his Sosaku career in 1959, winning many awards, including the Prime Minister’s Award in 1977. Crown Prince Naruhito and Princess Masako purchased his culturally sensitive dolls in 1969. His studio was located in Maebashi City of Gunma Prefecture, but after it was consumed by fire in 2006, Miyashita-san retired. Size (Approx.): The Hajime's doll is 16 cm (6.3"). Very good condition with few little flaws.

The miniature doll is 11 cm (4.3"). Very good condition.

The tallest doll is 19 cm (7.5") with a bobble head. Very good vintage condition with dust and little painting scratches.

The last one is 12.5 cm (4.7") with a bobble head. Very good condition with a bit of dust.

Please look at the pictures carefully (zoom in) to assess the condition of the dolls.
