Vintage Japanese Ceramic Beckoning Cat "maneki Neko" Lucky Piggy Bank For Sale

Vintage Japanese Ceramic Beckoning Cat

This unusual cat piggy bank has a story to tell. He is called "Maneki Neko" because as the legend goes a Japanese emperor saw a cat raise its paw as if greeting him. When he dismounted from his horse to pet the animal, the horse was hit by lightning and died.The emperorcredited the cat with saving his life and so the cat with the lifted paw became a symbol of good fortune, even in businesses. This one is ceramic and made in Japan, but the date is unknown. Its left paw is lifted next to its head and he wears a gold medallion around his neck on a red collar. This one's ears have some cracks in the red paint, but no flaking. There is a chip out of the back of each ear as well, and a small chip on his right back haunch. The paper seal over the hole to get out the money is torn but the red and gold Japan foil sticker is still there. It was hard to get a clear enough picture to read the word 'Japan' on the bottom of the seal, but it is there. Bank stands 5" high and is 3" wide and about 2.5" deep. He is white with a few black spots and the eyes are yellow with black pupils. He is ready to wish his new owner the samegood fortunethatthe emperor of old had!
