Appealing Japanese Ivory Netsuke of Fukurokuju
DESCRIPTION: A well carved and quite appealing ivory netsuke of Fukurokuju holding a fan in one hand and his staff in the other. Immediately recognizable by his tall, domed forehead, Fukurokuju is a Japanese deity of happiness, prosperity, longevity, and wisdom. Here he is depicted seated with a hairy tailed turtle (minogame) at his feet, also a symbol of longevity which is purported to live 10,000 years. Most likely dating from the late Meiji period (c. 1900), it is in excellent condition and quite well carved with charming expression. DIMENSIONS: 1 high (4 cm) x 1 wide (3.2 cm).
