This wonderful black and white bone china cat was produced by Royal Doulton. It is entitled Persian Cat - Seated, Style I. The facial expression is beautiful with a pinkish nose and yellow eyes. The Royal Doulton lion and crown logo is on the underside along with the model number HN 999 and artist's initial (K). The mark has bone china at the bottom which indicates it was produced between 1928 and 1973. It stands 5" tall.
I have another one listed with no damage in a separate ad. This one, unfortunately, has a few scratches on the tail and two tiny spots on it's back and left side where the black paint has chipped leaving white showing through. The white and yellowish spots in the photos are from the camera flash, except as noted earlier. The flaws are very small and do not detract from the beauty of this wonderful cat, but I have reduced the price to account for the flaws.
Great collectibles, friendly service, careful packing and quick shipping. Purrfect!!
