This little guy is just great! Ceramic bank in the shape of a lion was mold cast and then accented and glazed by hand. There are several fun design details.

The body is decorated with rows of small "buttons" and with paisley patterns. Even the ruff arond the tail is accented with curved lines. The mane is accented with circular indentations and raised texturing, as are the whiskers. The mouth has shaped lips over the coin slot opening. The ears are also indented slightly for shape, as are the lines of the paws. The end of the tail is also scored for texture.

Minor production flaw is a slight thinning of the black glaze on the nose and there is a small chip on the inside of the coin slot. The original plug is still here, but torn as it was a rubber piece that has dried out a bit over the years.

The remnant of the original label shows the letters O and M and a partial of the name, Japan. The label is just under the chin and is shown in the pictures.

Shipping quoted is for Priority Mail and insurance is included in the price.
