A nicely modeled and painted Mingei Kokeshi doll from one piece of wood retaining original bark. Where cut against the grain, top and bottom, having accumulated a patina - darker on the top. Painted decoration slightly worn - particularly the face from rubbing but still retaining the outline of the eyes. Signed on the side but obscured from rubbing of the paper-like top layer of the bark. Condition otherwise good. Height 11 3/8 inches (28.89 cm)
