This one is hard to let go of because I've never found a lucky frog this good! Vintage beautifully hand carved out of wood large Chinese Lucky Frog from Indonesia. He measures 6"x9" and is in nice condition overall, but to note a scrape in the wood on the side of one arm (see last photo). I believe the coin in his mouth might be real, but I'm having difficulty distinguishing if the coin is metal or wood. He came from an estate of a Salem, Mass lady who was a world traveller. On the back of him there is a sticker that reads "Made in Indonesia" and also a clipping about the Chinese Lucky Frog that reads, "Chinese people believe that Chan Chu (money frog), a mythical three legged frog, is an auspicious creature from the moon that brings great success and prosperity. According to Feng Shui (literally "wind" water"), the ancient Chinese art of arranging your environment to optimize energy flow, he should be placed fairly low in one of the corners diagonal to the main door, facing the door as though expecting to welcome wealth into the home or office. While you can have multiple money frogs, the optimal number is nine"
He is beautiful! Buy him now before I keep him for myself :-)
Thanks for looking and appreciating! Be sure to check out my other vintage finds from the same estate.
