    This was given to my daughter as a birth gift, from a Japanese dignitary friend of her grandfather's. It as said to have won first place at a doll show in Japan. We love it, and would like to know more about the maker (as I can't read the signature).

      Just found this website with kokeshi artists' signatures on it.

      I've seen this Kokeshi listed as made by Hakuhou.
