New product ☆ Antique Kokeshi dolls

"Kokeshi" is a Japanese traditional toy doll made by wood. Traditional shape has simple trunk and an enlarged head with a few thin, painted lines to define the face and there is no arms or legs.
There is a eleven types of traditional kokeshi out there, they have a particular shape and patterns.
But my kokeshi are not belonging to "traditional"  they are a modern "creative" Kokeshi.

I found a very small antique shop in Tokyo, when I saw the shop, like someone whispered to me "go check the shop!!" I parked my bicycle the from of the shop and WOW!! There was a full of kokeshi dolls everywhere in the shop!!
I picked few lovely kokeshi's for you☆ These are one of a kind things, you will almost never find the same kokeshi like this!!
I can't wait to go back to the shop and adopt more kokeshi dolls!!
