My Antique Investment

As part of my investments , I have my uncle buying some Japanese antiques for me. This is one that he bought. This is "Benzaiten" who is one of the 7 Gods of fortune, and the only woman God (or should I say - if I could speak - Goddess). The cup dates from the Taisho period in Japan (1912-1926). It's made by Kutani which is a well respected pottery maker both in Japan and in the world.

Since I7ve been threatening to be fussy if auctions don't go up this month, my uncle spent a few hours getting my antiques ready to place on auction. I'm looking forward to seeing how they do and hopefully increasing my net worth a bit more!
