This is a yellow lucky cat with a floral design holding a sea bream in one hand by Choho Kiln.
The pattern is painted in the "mori-e" technique, similar to the slip trailing technique, which is a characteristic of the Choho Kiln. A thick paint is squeezed out of a "icchin," a dispenser with a fine tip, and the patterns are carefully painted onto the surface. Mori-e adds a decorative pattern and tactile texture to a smooth porcelain surface.
The yellow color is said to be a bringer of "good luck".
It is said that a cat with its right paw up will being fortune and lucky.
Sea bream has long been valued as an auspicious symbol for celebrations and other special occasions.
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.
Choho Kiln was established at the end of the Taisho era (1912-1926), and has continued to operate as a wholesaler and manufacturer of Kutani Ware.
The kiln is characterized by bold painting and delicate "mori-e", three dimensional decorations, which are created by freely using green, yellow, purple, navy blue, and red color paints, a style called Kutani "gosai (five colors)".
In recent years, their main products have been interior decorations and ornaments. Choho III continues to preserve traditional techniques and patterns while adopting the modern sense of new designs.
