This is a finely carved 19th century Japanese Netsuke depicting Fukurokuju, one of the Seven Gods of Fortune, the God of Wealth and Longevity, holding a staff on his left hand, and placing his right hand on top a seated Karako's head. This carving is not signed, but, it is attributed to Masatoshi, because of the similarity of subject, and carving style to another netsuke that is listed on this webpage as item #60. Netsuke measures 1.50 inches (3.8cm) wide, and 2.08 inches (5.3cm) tall. Netsuke is in excellent condition, as may be seen in the posted photos.
