A special for the blue bear vending co – blue bear kokeshis!
Snuggled in their kigurumi/ 着ぐるみ (animal costume/ onesies), these beech wood doll bases have had ears added, then have been sanded, painted and carved with the bear ‘fur’.

Each one is carved slightly differently in a naïve and simple style and retains the look of being handmade - they are not perfect, and this is a part of their charm. This one has a little rough patch of wood (a natural flaw) behind her left ear (see photos). Please make sure you consult the pictures carefully and that you are happy with the design before purchasing. They have been finished in two coats of Danish oil for wood. Stamped underneath with ‘nakamura’ characters [中村] in red ink, and each bear is also numbered.
Approximately 15cm high.
Please note: THIS IS NOT A TOY and should be kept out of the reach of children.
