An unusual sake service pot in the shape of Hotei (Putai) dragging his voluminous sack of joy. It is porcelain covered in white with pale blue accents. Roughly 19 x 12 x 15 cm (7-1/2 x 4-1/2 x 6 inches). There is a small chip in the glaze on the handle and two spots where something stuck to it or it was supported in the kiln during firing (see last photo) otherwise is in fine condition.
