This vintage kokeshi was made by AKIYAMA, Chuichi(1913-1984) who was a Naruko style kokeshi craftsman.
This kokeshi is a copy of Eikichi MIYAMOTO’s (1880-1951) style, who was a Nanbu style kokeshi craftsman. It was said that this simple kokeshi was modeled on the old Naruko style.

Due to age, this kokeshi has a dirt on the bangs and a dent on the head.
