Japanese Big Fortune Money Cat, Hand Carved and Signed
Japan a rare large scale and lovely hand carved and hand-lacquered wooden Maneki Neko good fortune money cat. It is exquisitely carved in a Classic Japanese one piece " Ittobori" style (carved from one wooden piece). It is signed on bottom by the artist and dates to the Showa period circa 1930s. Dimensions: Big 14 inches tall and 12 inches wide. This comes from a very fine southern Japanese collection. Excellent detail. A rare work of art that is virtually impossible to find in Japan today as these massive signed works in wood are highly sought after by Japanese collectors. They seldom come to market. Hand carved with traces of old red lacquer. Only one. History: The Maneki-Neko literally -beckoning cat- is a common Japanese figurine and lucky charm or talisman which is often believed to bring good luck to the owner. In Modern Times, they are usually made of ceramic or plastic. Wooden examples are few and far between. The figurine depicts a cat (traditionally a calico Japanese Bobtail) beckoning with an upright paw, and is usually displayed in—often at the entrance of—homes, shops, restaurants, pachinko parlors, and other businesses. The maneki-neko is sometimes also called the welcoming cat, lucky cat, money cat, happy cat, beckoning cat, or fortune cat in English.
