This is a Japanese Tanuki statues which produced according to the "Shigaraki ware" pottery style of Shigaraki City, Shiga Prefecture, are one of Japan's most well-known lucky charms. It is from mid.1900's.

Believed to be bringers of commercial prosperity, they are often placed outside the entrance to shops. The standard tanuki has a good- natured face and a chubby, round body,but not like a standard Tanuki which has a braided hat and stands with his head slightly tilted, holding a traditional Japanese tokkuri (sake flask) in his hands, he stands straight wearing a red robes because he is Daruma.
