Carved by Harmony Kingdom artist, Peter Calvesbert, "Catch As Catch Can" is a Mini Treasure Jest box that features a cat stuck in a watering can. The cat has been chasing a mouse which is shown hiding inside of the can. On the outside of the can you will see Peter's signature mouse hiding on the spout.
The Mini Treasure Jest series is a small group of figurine boxes that are smaller in size than the average Treasure Jest.
This humorous box figurine was released in January 2000 and was retired in January 2006. The hallmarks are on the top portion and include a half moon, a C, Pc (for Peter Calvesbert), and the HBC logo. The label on the bottom of the box shows it was made in England.
Harmony Kingdom boxes are hand crafted, using marble resin, from original carvings. Then each is hand painted and tinted for a one-of-a-kind figurine. The boxes are hand painted by citizens of the rural English countryside of the South Cotswolds. There are differences in colorations on each piece.
This Mini Treasure Jest is in perfect condition, from the inventory of a closed store, and it will come in the original Harmony Kingdom green box with brochure. This popular collectible is referenced in "The Harmony Kingdom Reference Guide" by Leanna Barron (2002), page 100.
