Start a tradition collecting these hawaiian tropical, handblown and hand-painted ornaments. This collectible Maneki Neko glass ornament will add a touch of the East to your Christmas tree. Beautiful and luminescent, this Asian-inspired ornament is handcrafted with a dusting of glitter giving it a sparkle to enjoy each holiday season. He measures approximately 2-1/4″ x 3-1/2″. The Maneki Neko, literally “Beckoning Cat” in Japanese, is also known as Welcoming Cat, Lucky Cat, Money Cat or Fortune Cat. He is believed to bring good luck and fortune to the owner. He is beckoning with his paw and holding up a message that says “welcome good fortune and great wealth!” This cat is often depicted in the form of a sculpture (traditionally a Japanese Bobtail), beckoning with an upright paw, and is usually displayed – many times at the entrance – in shops, restaurants, pachinko parlors and other businesses in Japan, Hawaii and other Asian-populated cities. Now you can display this cute little cat on your tree and he may well bring great fortune to your family!
