These cute maneki-neko that fit in the palm of your hand were decoratively painted with the unique “mori” technique seen in kutani ware ornaments.
Following the tradition of the maneki-neko’s hands, where the raised right hand brings in money and the left hand beckons luck, both of them make one set.
The maneki-neko is a lucky charm loved by the Japanese from ancient times, and it is a traditional doll that many people with businesses would place close at hand.
This product was made so that the traditional lucky charm could be enjoyed as collectable figures. Their height is 6 centimeters, and there is a wide choice of patterns too, so it is perfect as a little gift. This product allows you to casually pick up and feel the high quality of kutani ware.
Price:¥5,400 (set of 2 from 4 colors )
