************A SHORT HISTORY OF KOKESHI DOLLS*************
Dating back to the latter part of the Edo Era (1603-1867), true Japanese kokeshi dolls are done by wood-turning artisans with years of experience, using seasoned wood. The dolls had a spiritual significance representing a wish for a healthy child. Kokeshi dolls are generally bought as mementos, but they are also seen as lucky charms!
