    £10.99 Members' price *


    A metal bookmark with a design inspired by the Japanese Lucky Cat symbol.

    The Lucky Cat is a common Japanese figurine which is believed to bring good luck to the owner. The figurine depicts a cat (traditionally a calico Japanese Bobtail) beckoning with an upright paw, and is usually displayed at the entrance of shops, restaurants, pachinko parlours (amusement arcades) and other businesses.

    The figurine will usually have a gold bell around its neck and will be holding a gold coin. Here the gold coin is inscribed with 'I heart the British Museum' - a quirky take on the traditional symbol.

    Exclusive to the British Museum.
