Japanese Ivory Okimono, Diakoku

From the early 20th Century, a refined marine ivory carving of Diakoku, one of the seven Lucky Gods. Diakoku is the God of Wealth, Commerce and Trade as well as often considered the God of the Household where he is often found in the kitchen. Shown smiling and holding his golden mallet, one is drawn to the attention to detail not only in the features but also in the fall of the garments and their decoration. Nicely yellowed with age this is perfect in every way with the exception of one small chip in the sleeve of the garment, as shown. Please feel free to contact us with questions. Signed by the artist. Height 3". Circa 1920
