Offered here we have an adorable pair of porcelain kittens. These were made in Japan during the 1950’s and are all hand painted - they are so sweet... Originally they would have had a little ribbon around their neck with a tag that said “Kittens by Karen” (tag shown in picture is not included) - the reverse side of the tag would have had the kittens name on it - this particular kittens tag would have said “I’m giggles”
The expression on their faces are so sweet - one of the kitties even has a little heat shaped nose :) the hand painted details are wonderful. These figurines measure about 3.75” in height and are in great condition - no chips, cracks, breaks or repairs but they do have some light crazing which is typical on these kinds of pieces from this era - one kitten has a pin sized factory glaze pop on the back of its head - it does not detract from the overall look of these little sweeties. Base of the foot on each figurine is stamped Japan.
*Please Note* We have two different sets from this series of Kittens by Karen available but no longer have the original tags attached that this particular set came with - the tag which is shown in the photo will not be included with this set - it is a proper tag from this series but will be sent with the other set of kittens we have available in our store as it is the original tag for the “cutie pie” named kitten it is pictured with.**
