I love his almost six inches tall size. Someone has cherished him because he's still here, without any damage. His colors are still vivid. But I love that he's also a bank. Evidently an unused bank. To get to any money inside, he would have had to been broken. So glad he wasn't! These carnival prizes date from as early as the nineteen-teens, but I believe this kitty is 1930s. Colors and design suit that era. He has no markings on him--few ever do.
I am no expert in this area of collecting but I have studied it a bit, to make sure I'm accurate in describing your kitty here. I certainly can appreciate why people collect these figures. The sheer number of the types of figures one can find is boggling. They are fun and charming and would cheer any room you set them in. Kitty, here, is a great addition to any chalkware collection. Thank you for checking in at my shop. I'll be glad to answer all questions.
