This red beckoning cat is made using the advanced technique of Kutani ware.

In the old days, Japanese farmers living with cats were said to prosper without crop damage because cats would drive away rats that damage their crops.
Today, also known as a "lucky cat," the beckoning cat is popular as a charm of good financial fortune.

Also, red has long been considered a congratulatory color. In Feng Shui, red, which has the attribute of fire, represents vitality and passion, and is the color with the strong power.

Filled with Japanese tradition and good fortune, this lucky cat is excellent for your house decor and brings good luck to you and your loved ones.
