Rare Kokeshi by Sekiguchi
This rare kokeshi by Sekiguchi is in excellent condition This kokeshi stands at 57cm tall with a sweet face and kanzashi hairdo. Her kimono is beautifully etched and hand painted in Autumnal colours with so much detail to her layers near the neck under the kimono. This kokeshi is only for the very serious collector and in museum condition. I doubt you would be able to find another like it in mint condition like this one anywhere.
Sekaguchi passed away in 2018 but his family carry on with the tradition of making sasaku kokeshi in his own museum where he worked and lived. Sekaguchi was a winner of many awards, such as the Ministry of International Trade Industry Award in 1978, Prime Minister’s Award and many others.
Sekaguchi favoured dogwood for his pieces and used many types of motifs which include elements of festivals, nature especially clouds, cherry blossoms and the gingko leaf.
