I loved the little cat, but really didn't like the color,a greyish color. So I spray-painted it red. It looks GREAT in my garden, by my deck steps, welcoming visitors. It's small, so you'll want to place it among smaller plants for it to be in scale with them. I really, really like it, and will order more lawn ornaments in future. Since its symbols are carved-in, they still show with the new coat of paint.Read More
Nice looking little statue even though mine seems to be rather miniature in size compared with the description ( 10.5 x 4.5 x 4.5 /. the box it came in was about the size described, but not the statue itself ). Statue was very well packaged ! Had the size description been correct I would have given it five stars.Read More
Good heavy doorstop. Looks unhappy, needs a smile, not looking like he feels very lucky. I'm not sure this material will be winter proof, seems pretty porous so I'll use him in my breezeway. I'm afraid he will crack if he freezes wet.Read More
My lucky cat is black, but would probably show details better in brown. Other than that, he is totally precious. I like him standing on an base--with protectors on the bottom, too. He is cute in his own right and is special because he isn't a garden-variety lawn statue like a gnome..Read More
It was a bit darker so I bought a small bottle of gold craft paint and wiped some on as a washRead More
Have been looking for something like this for quite a while, but anything Maneki Neko tends to be expensive and small, and not suitable for outdoor use. Just received mine last week, fast shipping. It's a nice, heavy, well made item with beautifully done detailing, and it's a good size for the price. Even though it is a dark color, the details are clear. Not sure if I will use this indoors or outdoors--it's nice to have the option to use it either place. I liked it so much I just ordered another one for my sister.Read More
My lucky cat sits by the front door to greet visitors. He is a heavy little guy. Be sure that you note the size as I did. It is a small piece which was fine with me. This is solid, anxious to see how he makes it thru the winter.Read More
This was out of stock for the longest time and I was so afraid that it wasn't going to be restocked. So glad it did! I love it!Read More
I LOVE this! When it arrived, it was heavier than I expected, but that is a good thing. It looks just like the picture, it looks rustic, and I like that. Very cute new garden ornament, very happy with this purchase!Read More
I love my lucky cat, which sits at my front door greeting all that visit. However, the color is more of a rust, which is fine with me, but the picture seems more gray. Nonetheless, I would recommend.Read More
