Complete, pristine, scarce set of fabulous hand painted vintage gilt porcelain Seven Lucky Gods figurines (??? Shichi Fukujin) representing wealth, good fortune, and longevity. All seven are in mint condition. Circa 1950s with the blue Made in Japan paper label mark!


Wow! This is a very hard to find colorful and striking set of classic mid century Japanese mythology folklore figurines, circa 1950s to early 1960s. The bright white porcelain base is very fine, and the hand painted details are superbly executed, finished with 22k gold accents. Please see the detail photos. All seven are in absolute mint condition with no chips, cracks, or restorations. They measure 3.5 inches tall. Five retain their original oval paper label on the bottom which reads, "Made in Japan". This style of blue and white label helps to date these vintage lucky gods to the 1950s era.

The Seven Lucky Gods of Good Fortune, The 7 Immortals, are:

From left to right as seen in our horizontal detail photo:

- Hotei, the fat and happy god of Abundance and Good Health
- Jur?jin, god of Longevity and Prosperity
- Fukurokuju, god of Happiness, Wealth and Longevity
- Bishamonten, god of Warriors
- Benzaiten (Benten-sama), goddess of Knowledge, Art, Beauty and Music
- Daikokuten (Daikoku), god of Wealth, Commerce and Trade
- Ebisu, god of Fishers or Merchants

We rarely come across this particular style of mid century Japanese Seven Lucky Gods. The bright Kutani Lucky Gods are seen from time to time, but never these Shichi Fukujin porcelain ceramic figurines statues. They are quite rare and make for a striking display, and of course are meant to bring so much Good Fortune into the home or office!
