Miniature Japanese Satsuma earthenware pottery kogo – small covered box – probably a figure of Hotei – done in classic tan crackle glaze with highlights of gosu blue – green- rust – gold. Interior a medium green glaze. Signed on the base in a green reserve cartouche. We date this to the Meiji period - probably around 1880-1895 – could be earlier.
