This is a cute little smiling black cat. He's not marked, but based on the style I would say he was made in Japan and is a mid-century redware cat. One of his eyes does have some paint loss, but this is typical and he has no chips or cracks. He's an adorable small cat for your small space.
Height is approx 3 3/4"-width from paw to tail is approx. 3 3/4."
