VINTAGE KOKESHI WITH STRIPES AND FIGURESGuillermina
Kokeshi are minimalist Japanese dolls made of a simple trunk and head, with no arms or legs. They are thought to originate in the Tohoku region of Japan during the late Edo period, when local farmers would come to the hot springs for a soak and bring back the toys for their children. Now Kokeshi are popular collectibles, exchanged as a token of friendship and displayed at home to bring peace and prosperity.
