Kokeshi Japanese Wooden Doll – Tiny Naruko Style Ningyo

Lovely tiny (please see size information below) Japanese wooden kokeshi doll featuring hand-painted features and a tiny image of a seaside scene painted on the body. This pretty doll is less than 40 years old and is in poor to fair condition with marks and scratches from handling and discoloration and stains from age and display. This is a “naruko” style kokeshi with a special neck joint which allows the doll to squeak when the head is turned. This clever design was developed long ago by craftsmen seeking a way to cause the dolls cry like a baby.

Weight: 0.2 ounces (7 grams)

item code: R2S4-0003303
