Nemariko kokeshi has almost exclusively been produced in the Naruko region of Miyagi prefecture and it means "sitting" in the local direct. The doll apparently is "sitting", showing the bottom part is slightly enlarged. Simple paint strokes created a humble and innocent expression. Beautifully aged patina. Ca. mid 1900s. Dimensions: 2 1/8" diameter 3 3/4" tall
