This Kutani-yaki Seven Lucky Gods treasure ship is very popular as an auspicious item for one's first dream of the New Year. Can be given as a gift for those both in and out of Japan.
Around the middle of the Edo period, it was a popular custom to place a picture of a treasure ship under the pillow in order to have a good first dream of the New Year. At first it was a simple ship with just treasure, but then eventually became crowded as the Seven Lucky Gods made an appearance.
The Seven Lucky Gods are a mixture of gods from three countries - India, China and Japan. In Japan, from the late Heian period, people started to believe in them and it is said this originates from the Seven Sages of the Bamboo Grove and the Buddhist phrase that translates as "seven adversities disappeared and seven fortunes arose". In general, these seven gods, from left to right - Ebisu, Daikokuten, Benzaiten, Bishamonten, Hoteison, Jurojin, Fukurokuju - are called the Seven Lucky Gods.

[Ebisu] A Japanese god based on ancient Shintoism. (A lucky god that brings business prosperity, a good catch/harvest.)
[Daikokuten] A Hindu god from India. (God of a bumper crop and wealth & happiness.)
[Benzaiten] The only female deity that is the god of Indian rivers and waters. (God of music, speech, fortune, wisdom and long life)
[Bishamonten] One of the Four Heavenly Kings that protects Buddhist teachings. A Hindu god from India who is protector of the north. (God of warding off evil and wealth of riches.)
[Hoteison] A Buddhist Zen monk who actually existed in Míngzhōu (China) at the time of the late Tang Dynasty - Later Liang Dynasty. (God of a peaceful home and prosperity & happiness)
[Jurojin] A Chinese Taoist god. A symbol of harmony between longevity and nature that is the incarnation of the "Old Man of the South Pole" star, Canopus. (God of prosperity & happiness, wealth and longevity)
[Fukurokuju] A Chinese Taoist god. Possesses the virtues of happiness, remuneration and longevity, and is said to be the same body as Jurojin yet goes under a different name. (God of economic fortune and longevity.)

*For vases,​ especially ceramics (pottery): Should sealing treatment be insufficient,​ water may ooze out on rare occasions. Should water leaking occur,​ please contact the customer center.
*Using abrasive sponges,​ nylon or metallic scourers,​ cleansers etc may cause the gold,​ silver,​ paint or adhesive to peel off and damage the surface,​ so refrain from using.
