As found. A vintage carved stained and varnished wood figure of a hotei or budai (often erroneously referred to as a buddha or laughing buddha).

The figure has unfortunately suffered a few cracks in the wood, believed to be due to shrinkage, and one of the figure’s fingers appears to be truncated, but is otherwise structurally sound. We have tried to show the cracks in the photographs and the price asked reflects the condition of the figure. The figure has been cleaned, but might benefit from further, more expert, cleaning.

The figures stands approximately 7.5in high in all to the tips of its fingers. Exact age unknown but probably dates from the middle part of last century, possibly later.
