    Design is shape of standing male & female cats, he in suit & tie, wearing glasses, she in skirt & jacket, with purse & pearl necklace. They appear to be older couple. Rita Marandino’s name is copyrighted on the bottom of the teapot. I have not been able to find out anything about it. If you can help, I would appreciate it very much.

    I have an Otagiri music box that plays the tune “Talk to the Animals”. The music box consists of an elephant standing on the side of a large leaf tree (palm or banana) and an inside revolving “cylinder” which I believe to be a baby elephant. Pristine condition. Its really pretty and I love elephants but no one seems to mention this company making music boxes. Made in Japan 1981.
