Tanuki Vintage Japanese Pottery Raccoon Dog Good Luck Promissory Note Saki Jug

Tanuki are known in Japanese folklore as mystical shape-shifting spirits... raccoon, dog, badger, and fox-like composites. Once portrayed as frightening, they have more recently become benevolent figures bringing good luck and prosperity.

  • This tanuki is glazed pottery.
  • Numbered on bottom of promissory note: first 2 numbers are worn at top - might be 18, followed by 4224.
  • He measures 6-1/2" x 4-3/8".
  • Excellent condition... no chips, cracks, or repairs.
  • Purchased with a collection of tanukis from an estate sale.

Tanuki are said to have 8 special features that bring good luck:

  • The large hat protects against trouble or bad weather.
  • The large eyes perceive his surroundings and help make good decisions.
  • The sake bottle symbolizes virtue.
  • The big tail provides steadiness.
  • The large scrotum represents financial luck.
  • The promissory note shows trust.
  • The big belly symbolizes decisiveness.
  • And he also has a friendly smile.
