Details

Wearing an elegant collar and adorned with bright flowers, a blue-eyed kitty purrs contentedly. Nantana Sompamitre transforms mango wood into a Korat or Si-Sawat (happiness) cat. Loved throughout Thailand, this natural breed originated in Ampur Pimai in the province of Korat where they have been bred in the royal cattery since 1350. The elegant cat was owned only by royalty and courtiers. Sompamitre carves wood into the desired shape and coats it with lacquer. Once dried it is polished, and another coat is applied – up to twenty times. The final layer is polished with powdered fired clay and painted by hand.

Poor little Blue Eyed Cats review never shows up... I bought this years ago as a gift for a friend of mine...I get a smile when I see it proudly displayed in her home. Painted details are exquisite.

"Nice design"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

It s a nice-looking box, larger than I expected, good for keeping small items like jewelry. The only thing is, I have golden shimmer powder on my hands and fingers after handling the box.
