This uncommon and pretty bibelot,maybe a match holder, is made of terra-cotta with a polychrome patina.
The cat is rather gray with a pink nose,and the mouse in gray-beige tones.
The mouse muzzle is damaged,there is a lack visible on photo 6 .There is also a little wear of paint on the small piece of its tail that comes out on the shoe.But these can be repaired very easily.
There are very slight natural wear by places on the shoe,due to age,but it’s in overall good condition.
It’s a nice quality item with lots of small details very well rendered,like the cat’s fur for example.
A beautiful gift for a cats’ collector!
It’s about 5,91 inches long (15cm),3,54 high (9cm) and 2,36 wide (6cm).
