A Hirado porcelain jubako of circular form comprised of four compartments, its finial sculpt as the lucky god of mirth, Hotei, leaning upon his treasure sack. This fine jubako is designed with moriage cranes-in-flight in white enamel alternating with cranes in underglaze blue enamels. The theme, portraying Hotei and cranes, symbolizes longevity and happiness—two beloved subjects in Japanese art. This jubako, both aesthetically beautiful as well as functional, is in very good condition with only a few minor frit marks natural to the firing process. Height: 10.5”, width: 8.5” Meiji Period, Japan
