This beautiful cat with green eyes, pink nose, and a wistful expression was called Cat - Seated, head looks up. It was produced by Beswick of England, and is model number 1030. The color looks black to me with a white and gray shaded chest. However, black is not one of the colors mentioned in the Beswick Animals reference by Callows and Sweets. They do state that black gloss colourways were used on cats from 1986-1989, however. I assume that is when this piece was produced. It would have been one of the last of the original Beswick pieces prior to Royal Doulton issuing the pieces with their own name in 1989. It is both incised Beswick and England and has the oval Beswick stamp under the gloss. The cat stands 6.25" tall. The designer was Arthur Gredington. Condition is excellent with no damage.
Great collectibles, friendly service, careful packing and quick shipping. Purrfect!!
