Antique miniature bronze figure of the "Laughing Buddha" whom the Japanese refer to as "Hotei." Joyful and beautifully rendered, the style and patina indicate this statuette was probably created during the Meiji or Taisho eras (approx 1900 - 1925). While the piece does not bear an artist's seal or signature, the detailed craftsmanship says it all: this spiritual gem was produced by a talented hand.

Height: 2 in (5 cm)
Width: 1.4 in (3.5 cm)
Depth: 1.2 in (3 cm)
Weight: 6 oz (170 grams)

Note that figure was photographed under bright natural light and may appear darker in indoor settings.
