Kutani Lucky Cat - Maneki Neko S
This is a black lucky cat with a gorgeous pattern of flowers and butterflies.
A lucky cat facing sideways means to solve a problem from a different angle, which brings good luck.
Along with calico cats, black cats are also the standard for beckoning cats. The black cat is considered to be a cat with special power, and it was cherished that it would absorb the devils and disasters of the house.
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.
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.

About kutani ware
Kutani ware is a type of pottery produced in the Kaga region of Ishikawa Prefecture and it has a history of over 350 years.
It is characterized by the heavy brilliance of the five colors of green, yellow, red, purple, and navy blue that are applied to the bold and daring lines.
Its long history has evolved through the tireless efforts and enthusiasm of people who have sought innovation while maintaining tradition.
In the early 1700s, the Kutani kilns were closed, but about 80 years later they were opened and Kutani ware was revived.
The beauty of the various styles and methods of painting is known as "Japan Kutani" and is highly regarded around the world.
Lovely piece but glaze rubbed off
This beckoning cat ornament is beautiful. It came carefully packaged and wrapped in a moss green furoshiki. However, when I opened the parcel, a patch of red glaze from the cat’s collar flaked off! I was very disappointed, considering the cost and quality of the item. I have purchased from Musubi Kiln before and had no problems with the article. Because of the flaking glaze, I am unable to recommend this product 100%.
