Maneki Neko the Beckoning Cat

My Collection of Maneki Neko

Collection page 1 2 3 4 5 6 7

This guy came from China Town in Vancouver. He is holding a magnificent Koi fish, who just happens to be spewing piles of coins from his mouth! What a lucky find for him! He also has a polka dotted collar and bow which is unusual but very cute.

I bought this little framed Maneki Neko display on ebay for $6.00. It has 7 Maneki Nekos of all different colors and each is holding something different. The seller was located in Hong Kong.

This little golden cat is the third one I found. He is smaller then the other two and his face is very much in the same style as the first one. I like the way their eyes are open so wide, they look crazy!

This little guy is from the same kiosk as the little guy above. He has freckles and looks somewhat surprised for some reason. They were really well priced so I didn't hesitate to buy them both along with another. I think they all came from the same factory because they had the same company logo on the bottom.

I found this funny little ceramic cat at a Feng Shui Kiosk in a mall downtown. The coin is painted a plain gold and has a sticker with the symbols printed on it, glued on. I enjoy his funny little green whiskers as well.

This odd little platform has two plastic Maneki Neko's glued to it along with some tiny plastic golden ingots and a large one with a pineapple glued to it. There is also a larger ceramic Cat glued to it and it is painted brown. It was an odd find because it looks so out of place and cobbled together. Fun!

I found this cat in a gift and candy shop in China Town. He is made of glazed porcelain with some gold gilding here and there. He has a lobster on his shirt for some reason and is wearing what appears to be a Shiner hat? The hand that is outstretched has a hole in it for an incense stick.

This is a set of bamboo chopsticks with two white cartoony looking Maneki Nekos and some coins painted on each stick. I haven't used them yet but they were too cute not to add to the collection. The paint seems very prone to rubbing off so i don't think I'll be using them too awful much.

My mom gave me this little watch for my birthday as well (she knows what I like). It's a little black clip on watch that has strangely white eyes with no pupils. It's made of a heavy metal like steel or something, painted with enamel.
