Kaihei katase is one of the best sosaku kokeshi artists, who is famous for his stylish design. Since he won the japanese prime minister kokeshi award in 1954, his works become valuable and got hard to find for an affordable price. He was a soldier prior to being a kijishi and perhaps this way an outlet for him upon his return to the homeland. Many of his kokeshi can be identified by the soft arched, thickening eyebrow -righ in the center fanning out thinly on both ends. Besides the prime minister award, he had won so many prizes in his life. This is a great chance to own award winning artist’s masterpiece. Probably 1950s – 1970s. Vintage fairly good condition, there are some scratches and stains. Please look at pictures and video. Size: 32.5 cm (12.6). I’m happy to answer any questions (vous pouvez aussi me contacter en franais :). This item is made of wood.
