A spectacular pair of vintage-new-in-the-box Japanese Kokeshi Dolls. These dolls are native to Yamaguchi Prefecture. They are called "Ouchi Ningyo" and are distinct from other kokeshi because they are hand-painted in traditional Japanese lacquers. They come in many sizes and items like these normally retail for $100-$150 in Japan.

This pair comes with the original box (see second picture), which is also handmade and adorned with hand-painted calligraphy. The box also bears the artist's seal in red ink. On the side of the box is a notation in Japanese that records the date the item was originally purchased: June 12 1988.

For the purpose of photographing the items they are shown on a black platform that's about 1/2 inch thich (1.5 cm). The dolls do come with a black platform; however it is not as high as the one shown.
