An attractive koro and cover, the rounded body set on six flared feet and applied with shishi-mask ring handles, the cover pierced and surmounted by a seated figure of Hotei holding a tama, painted overall in pale pastel enamels and delicate gilding with children showing a scroll painting to their teacher and sages round a table, the borders and Hotei�s robes painted with various brocade designs.

The finial of this piece shows a typical image of Hotei, he is noted for his happy outlook, fat tummy and huge earlobes. If not seated with his Sack of Wishes he may be shown, as here, with the tama or wish-granting jewel. This piece is also remarkable for the very pale colours and lightness of decoration.
