Here we have, a nice piece of Italian porcelain or pottery. It is a cat figurine, and has applied hair all over the body. It is called Spaghetti Lace, and is marked on one foot, Made in Italy. No maker known. The head is hand painted with the eyes being green, and the ears and center of the head have black decoration, with painted whiskers, and mouth. Mid century or earlier. Not exactly sure when these were made. It is in very good condition, but if you notice, one of the ears has a repair, which is shown in the last photo, and can be seen in the other photos of the head. Found one flaked off piece of the applied hair, which you will have to hunt. Almost didn't see it. It measures 7 1/4" high, 10 1/4" long, and is 4" wide. If you like figurines, here is an unusual piece, and one that stands out. Look them up! This is priced to allow for the repaired ear and flake. Great for a cat collection!!!
