Kokeshi by Takeda Masashi
Any kokeshi by Takeda Masashi (1930-2015) are highly sort after and very collectable as they are rare to find and also in such mint condition as this one is. Takeda Masashi studied under Takeda Usaburo.
His kokeshi have a unique style, with rich wooden tones and carved flower detail, and beautifully detailed, decorated Kimono with some kind of carved floral motif. Takeda Masashi appreciates the natural decorative nature of wood by giving his dolls great character and depth. Paint is used sparingly, allowing the natural texture of the wood to shine through.
This kokeshi is in mint condition standing at 36cm tall with artist signature on the bottom and carved on the lower back. An excellent mid century doll highly collectable expressing serenity and stability.
