Antique Japanese Bronze Tanuki, Chikusen
Please refer to our stock # MOR6852 when inquiring.
A timid looking creature in dilapidated straw hat sheepishly approaches carrying his ledger and bottle for a refill. A comic image of the Tanuki with his famous beer belly reputation for heavy drinking. One can guess he will be asking for tonight's bottle on credit as he gazes up, shoulders hunched, pleading. It is 16 cm (6 inches) tall and in excellent condition signed on the back in an silver-wire inlay cartouche: Chikusen.
