19th century netsuke depicting Takaramono - a group of objects, each endowed with an emblematic meaning: Kakuregasa (the hat of invisibility), Kakure Mino (lucky rain coat protecting against evil spirits), Tama (sacred pearl), axe-shaped coin, an inexhaustible purse with money and a kite. Wonderful piece in Japanese taste, essentially a wish for luck, health and prosperity. Very good quality work, stained dark brown and worn to natural color on the raised spots. Himotoshi (cord hole) is formed by a natural opening in the carving. Signed HARUTOSHI in seal form on the bottom. Length 2 1/4 inches.
