kumakokeshi - no.12
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’ or painted with sashiko inspired patterns.
Each one is carved/ treated 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. Please make sure you consult the pictures carefully and that you are happy with the design before purchasing. They have been finished in a top coat of matt acrylic. 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.
