This is a 1960’s vintage Naruko kokeshi doll, by Kenzaburo OHNUMA (1894-1983) in Tohoku, Japan.

This kokeshi was made around 1961 when he was 67 years old (Some elder craftsmen used an old counting system. The actual age and the year were different sometimes).

The facial expression with an upward glance looks like a child is waring a guilty expression or thinking a plan in front of her parents. It is an adorable wooden doll.

 The wooden pattern under the head (we call it the shoulder) is ‘biri kanna moyou’, which was carved with a wooden plane. Biri is an onomatopoeia for the sound of the plane, Biri Biri.

The small items are not included in the product.
