Kokeshi

Kokeshi  the original Japanese dolls are made of fine wood and date back to the Japanese handicraft culture of the Tohoku region in the Edo period (1603 - 1868);  later some master craftsmen introduced a more rounded shape defined as "creative", in fact unlike the first kokeshi which were made with a longer and straighter bust, the "creative" have only maintained the characteristics of not having arms and legs, the engravings on the bust of kimono with flowers and being painted by hand. Each kokeshi has a unique and different imprint from the other despite having the same name, the assignment and meaning of the name is the responsibility of the craftsman who makes them and each model is given one with an important meaning. They are a refined object made from precious and seasoned wood worked especially for their creation. Usaburo kokeshi are appreciated both in Japan and in the rest of the world  by collectors, as a souvenir and as a gift because they are considered a very special and auspicious gift.
