This Showa period okimono netsuke is one of the Seven Gods of Luck, Jurojin, also called the Star God of Longevity, who is widely worshipped for his role in administering the span of life on earth, and is the patron of scholarly success. Here this exceedingly charming deity sits with his magic fawn, wearing the robes of a scholar, which is meticulously scrimshawed with various motifs. The ivory is cream white with striations and markings, while the engravings are delicately tinted in tea color. The netsuke was made at the time when Japanese began to wear Western clothing. The okimono was designed with a natural himotoshi for wearing as a netsuke.
