Vintage Lucky Cat Figurine with Music Book - Made in Occupied Japan

Sorry, this item has sold.

This is a very interesting and unusual piece - it's like a Westernized version of the Japanese Lucky Cat, "Maneki Neko" - right paw up for luck, and in the other paw this tabby cat holds a music book. The cat has a bisque style surface, as in matte, rather than glossy.

Marked on the bottom "Made in Occupied Japan" dating to after WWII and before 1953.

CONDITION: Excellent with no cracks, nicks, or chips.

SIZE: Approx. 5 inches tall.

Extremely cute, does seem like a lucky cat pose, very safely wrapped, a nice addition to my cat clowder.
