    Can anyone help me identify this statue? I obtained it from the USA, but I have no idea if it is valuable, or just decorative. Approx 12" tall. No identifying marks. Head is unglazed. Glaze to body shows no signs of cracking.

    Unsolved Mystery

      Thanks so much for your help Jim :-) I have uploaded a photo of the base. There don't appear to be any makers marks. I did notice the 4 round marks from what were probably surface protectors (small foam or felt dots), leading me to think this is a modern reproduction or chotsky. Just didn't want to sell it for a few pennies if it's worth a lot LOL!

      Jurojin – Jurojin is the god of wisdom and long life. He is portrayed as an old man with a long white beard, who wears a hat and holds a knobbled walking stick with a scroll tied to it.
      Fukurokuju – the god of happiness, wealth and longevity, Fukurokuju has an elongated forehead and a long moustache. He too holds a walking stick with a scroll tied to it, so is often confused with Jurojin.

      next question is the official Jurojin – Jurojin is the god of wisdom and long life. He is portrayed as an old man with a long white beard, who wears a hat and holds a knobbled walking stick with a scroll tied to it.
      Fukurokuju – the god of happiness, wealth and longevity, Fukurokuju has an elongated forehead and a long moustache. He too holds a walking stick with a scroll tied to it, so is often confused with Jurojin.

      next question is it official yahama game kiln , no but a sort of same type of wear , it got some age
