Japanese artists are presenting us with a new mix of traditional and contemporary Tea Cup designs. While your tea or coffee steeps in a Japanese Black Cat Coffee Cup, Balloons enjoy the whimsical design and the aromatic scent. One very serious black cat floats around the cup on a series of colorful balloons reminding you of the ‘hither and thither’ way of life. Consider and be better able to face the many small and large challenges your day may hold.
“In Japan, cats are revered for giving good luck and other positive results. The popular Japanese cat figurine maneki-neko (招き猫, “beckoning cat”) is typically believed to bring such blessings. The figurine is often of a cat with its paw in an upright position as if beckoning. According to Japanese legend, a landlord witnessed a cat waving a paw at him. Intrigued by this gesture, he came close to the cat when suddenly a lightning bolt struck the exact place he was previously standing in. The landlord believed that his good fortune was because of the cat’s actions. Hence, the beckoning hand became a symbol of good luck.” -courtesy of KCP International, Japanese Language School.
