A Bizen pottery sculpture of Daruma

With characteristic salt glaze.

Incised inscription: Bizen Inbe with impressed seal Tōkei
The gilt copper ear-ring and the lacquer and yak hair fly-whisk are by Robert A. Soanes (born 1969)

Apparently the Meiji emperor commissioned a figure of Hotei from the artist.
