This adorable Cybis figurine portrays a sleeping kitten lying on its back with one paw positioned on its forehead as if to hid its face from unwanted intruders. The figure is named "Topaz" and was in production from 1975-1977. Great detail with rusty-orange highlights. The figure measures 5" in length, 4" in width and 2 3/4" in height. It is stamped "Cybis" with the copyright insignia and raised in-mold bird logo. There are no cracks, chips or repairs. So cute.
