Manufacturer: Korean Nodders Bobbleheads

Nifty find out of a home. These are 4 vintage miniature painted wood nodders of bobbles or bobbleheads, which we have also seen referred to as Kokeshi dolls (although we often see Kokeshi Dolls associated with Japan while these were made in Korea). There are 2 pairs, each consisting of a boy or man and a girl or woman. One pair is taller and thinner which we believe represent a man and woman, while the second pair is shorter and fuller, so this may represent two children, a boy and a girl. All came out of the same home together but we don't know if they were originally purchased together as a set.

There is a gold foil label on the underside base of the short girl nodder which states "Made in Korea". From the look and style, we believe these were all made in the same country at about the same time, but only one piece bears the country information (there is no manufacturer information on these pieces). Given the Korea name, we believe these vintage bobbleheads were made prior to the Korean War which took place from 1950 to 1953, so they are pre 1950's and pre Korean War, possibly made in the 1930's or 1940's, we're not sure.

The thin man is the tallest figure, standing about 2 1/2 inches in height, with a greatest width or diameter to his round head of about 3/4 inch. The thin woman stands about 2 5/16 inches in height, with a greatest width also to her round head of about 3/4 inch. The two shorter boy and girl figures stand about 1 3/8 inches in height, with a greatest width to their round bases of about 7/8 inch (which is also the approximate width/diameter of their round heads and angled round bodies). The two taller figures stand on much narrower round bases of about 1/2 inch in diameter, and as such, are very easy to accidentally knock over (this can also occur with the shorter figures but is more problematic with the taller thin ones).

In all cases, these old figures are made of two pieces of wood, with one for the body and one for the head. The head pieces seem to be inserted inside the bodies via some sort of a wood peg, but this is inserted in such a manner that the heads are attached but can bobble or shake or wobble slightly. These don't bobble as significantly as the larger nodders usually wobble, but bobble in a slighter fashion. Of the four nodders, the short boy's head bobbles the most. All heads seem well attached to the bodies, with none being able to be taken apart easily (we've not tried to separate any, and are just trying to note here that all seems attached as it should).

We've provided 8 images to show from varied angles, including a closeup of the Korea foil label. Please note that the cameral light causes white "hot spot" reflections on the smooth wood and painted surfaces (you will see these white spots move as you look across the images, there are no large white areas here). Please use the zoom feature to examine closely.

Very nice collectible vintage condition but with expected evidence of age and wear. We see only one small edge chip, on the short boy along his angled body edge. The thin woman shows a good bit of crazing lines in her body paint (this doesn't show well in the images but is there). The thin man shows the most surface paint wear, with a lot of paint wear lines/spots on his body (you can see this in the images), but there is some slight evidence of paint spot wear to a much lesser degree on the other figures. The two shorter figures show a good bit of brown and other light spotting on their heads/faces, with much less face wear on the thin woman and further less on the thin man. The red wood tip on the top of the short boy's hat shows paint wear. There is other general wear on these older figures such as some scratches, spots, etc. These do not have a new, mint look, but that is to be expected given the age and style of these pieces, and how they were crafted and likely sold as souvenirs, and all supports their neat vintage look and believability of age.

These would make an interesting addition to any collection of nodders and bobble heads.
