As part of our Japanese art collection we are delighted to offer this large decorative brown glazed studio pottery model of Ebisu riding a carp , Ebisu is the only god whose origins are purely Japanese. He is the god of prosperity and wealth in business, and of abundance in crops, cereals and food in general. He is the patron of fishermen and therefore is represented with fishermen's costumes such as a typical hat, a fishing rod in his right hand and a fish that can be either a carp, a hake, a codfish or a sea bass, or any large fish in general that symbolize abundance in meals. It is now common to see his figure in restaurants where fish is served in great quantities or in household kitchens., this would make a great decorative object for a kitchen , bathroom or conservatory , let Ebisu bring you some good fortune !

The condition for such a large studio piece is good , there are flaws to the glazing and a small old chip on the waves to the rear , overall a great value one off piece of Japanese studio pottery .
