A rather small netsuke of the lucky deity Fukurokuju, depicted with his typical over-exaggeratedly, almost phallic, large forehead. He is holding a fan in his right hand and has a quaint facial expression. Very fine patina and large himotoshi through the back and underside. The bottom with the signature SHIGEMASA.
