Offering a charming and highly collectible antique cold painted lead/spelter Ballerina Cat from the early 1900s. Cold Painted in Germany probably by George Heyde. This novelty figurine depicts a cat tying the final strings on her ballerina outfit. The strings are made of metal wire. She is quite heavy.
This is the first cold painted cat I have seen dressed as a ballerina. Very desirable.
She measures almost 2.25" tall.
