Zentner Collection: Antique Japanese Tansu, Asian Works of Art
A Japanese Tanuki garden statue made of Shigaraki pottery. A perfect good luck mascot for any garden or indoor decor. Entirely hand made and created by a Shigaraki artisan. It wears a straw hat to protect its head from the elements and it carries a Japanese ledger book in its left paw. Known in Japan for its good luck abilities, it is often seen standing outside of restaurants and pubs attracting customers and diners to enter the business establishment. Minor loss commensurate with its age.

Age: Taisho/Showa (1920-1930)

Dimensions: 32 3/4" High x 13 1/2" Wide x 13" Deep
