Shunyo  Shunyo  The name of artist pronounce Shunyo or Shunyou ( 春容 ).  The dolls are vintage from 1970s-1980s no others have been produced since (so the artist may have passed). The word 春容 itself means ' The Scenery of The Spring '. This word is a literary language which is used more for poems ( lyrics ) or novels, not for the regular conversation.   This Kokeshi artist calls himself ' 春容 '  may be a pseudonym for the artist. Thanks to Tomoko for the info.  Shunyo
