Exceeded My Expectations

I am thrilled with my Lucky Cat - Maneki Neko Q. The quality is superb and the detail is gorgeous. The design and painting is very intricate and I am appreciative of the fact that my Lucky Cat has such a fine detailed design. I love the height and he fits comfortably in the palm of my hand. I have placed him on display in my china cabinet amongst all my sterling silver. The added touch of the traditional Japanese Furoshiki wrap and the Musubi is lovely and appreciated. Thank you do very much for your kind and thoughtful attention to detail and presentation. Pat H. New York USA
