A very rare Qing dynasty cat plaque, we say very rare because the cat was seldom used for decorative reasons in imperial China. It was never very popular with Buddhist tradition, in that it was the cat that never paid homage to the Buddha's funeral. Condition is good except some old wood loss to the inner paw area. It measures about 8" x 7"
