This charming bronze tone metal cat is done in the Art Deco style. This particular piece is incised with the Franklin Mint logo FM. In 1986-1988, the Franklin Mint issued a series of cat figurines for the Curio Cabinet Cats Collection. Each cat was produced from a different material, in different countries, and reflected various art forms popular through the ages. This cat is from the third series which are harder to find.
The cat measures almost 3" high. It has a couple of dark spot on the back that appear to be manufacturing flaws, but they are only noticeable under bright light and close inspection. This is a fairly heavy piece. The insert is not available.
