This Limited Edition Treasure Jest box figurine called Fishy Business depicts a cat wearing a utility belt who is dumping a pail full of piranha fish on his unsuspecting sleeping pal. This box figurine was made exclusively for Collect it! magazine readership. The figurine was carved by M. Rickets & A. Richmond for Harmony Kingdom of England in 2000. It was released on 5/1/2000 in an edition size of 1500.
This particular box has the hand written number of 58 / 1500 on the inner rim of the sleeping cat. An incised Caffeine Meow is found around the sides also. The box figurine has more coloring than most Harmony Kingdom Treasure Jests. The interior carving depicts a bound mouse, fish bones, two watches and other tiny items. The hallmarks found on the back of the chair include a ©, an M, a half moon, and the HBC logo (treble clef). The piece measures 2.84 x 2.68 x 3.55 inches. It is in excellent condition. The model identification in TJCICA2.
This Treasure Jest comes in a presentation box, which is in very rough shape, with a Harmony Kingdom pamphlet. The sides of the box are intact but the lid has been crushed a bit and the green upper layer of the lid is separated from the underlying layer. The sticker on the side of the box has the hand written number 58 of 1500.
