Edo period, 18th century
 

Standing upright, with a cockerel in front of him, with Chinese coat, wide-brimmed hat and bulbous eyes.

H. 9.4 cm

 

The slightly smug Dutchman looks as if his cockerel has just won a fight.
His bulbous eyes, big nose and two remaining teeth are typical for the depictions of Dutchmen in the eyes of the Japanese. He wears a plumed hat, a Dutch collar and a beautiful Chinese coat.
