Our black kitty with the piercing golden eyes is sitting pretty in solid cast iron. She's looking for a Forever Home and will be glad to help watch over her new household -- just don't expect her to catch any mice!!
Puss is beautiful in black, which is an old finish and appears original. She is approximately 8 inches tall and 4 inches wide across her chest. Her pillow base is approximately 6 inches wide. She is a 3/4 Body figure with a flat back designed to fully contact a door behind her. A puffy bowtied ribbon adorns her neck. The sculpting on this cat is well done and very realistic. This is a long-hair, either Persian or Angora. We are guessing Persian with the huge round eyes and small ears. Persians of yesteryear did not have the pushed-in faces of today's felines.
IMPORTANT: This very probably is a Hubley casting but we cannot be sure. It definitely is not one of the EARLIEST Hubleys, which had colored ribbons and pillows. Hubley lasted until 1970, so it may be one of their later castings. We've priced accordingly.
CONDITION is superb with NO cracks, splits or metal problems. The filing on the top of the head is just a little rough but obviously, this is not fake. On the back are strips and circles of old felt padding. We've left them as found. It would be easy to remove them, but they've clearly protected a door for a long time.
What a great gift for a cat lover -- or paint her to resemble your own family pet.
