This beautiful blue porcelain cat is done in the Parian style which layered white porcelain sculpted designs on the blue. This reminds me of Wedgwood Jasperware. 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 harder to find third series.
This particular piece is stamped with the Franklin Mint logo TFM, and still has the paper label indicating it was crafted in Malaysia. The cat measures about 2.75" long and 1.75" high. It is in excellent condition. Insert not available.
