These beautiful traditional style vintage kokeshi dolls have been sourced by the Crafty Squirrel herself (Morgan) whilst on her Crafty Squirrel Tokyo Tour. Hand painted and one of a kind - Kokeshi are Japanese dolls from the Tohoku region in Northern Japan. These handmade wooden dolls have a colorful history and were traditionally made as children's toys but later became popular amongst Japanophiles and collectors. Kokeshi are thought to date back to the early 19th-century.
