Presented here is a Harmony Kingdom Special Event Treasure Jest called "Alley Cat's Meow". This Treasure Jest box features an alley cat that has seen too many fights! He is holding his tail. One eye is shut, with several scars around it. One ear has a small piece missing too ... he was sculpted that way. Inside of the box is a mouse sandwich between two pieces of bread. The artist for the box is Monique Baldwin. This box figurine was only available to those who attended a Store Dealer Event during the Cat's Meow Tour that took place in 2000 from March thru June. This box was the fourth piece made for the Tour.
At each Special Event, a representative from Harmony Kingdom was there to sign purchases and answer questions. The main representative was named "Prince Brian" and he signed this box lid with his name, and then drew a small frog under the logo crown. All boxes did not have this type of signature.
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 cat is in perfect condition, from the inventory of a closed store. It has never been displayed. The bottom has the Harmony Kingdom label, indicating it was made in England. It will come in the original green Harmony Kingdom box, with certificate. This cat, in mint condition, is difficult to find.
We are also including with the purchase, at no extra cost, a button that was given out by Prince Brian during the Special Event. He has signed the back of the button.
This clever and creative box is referenced in "The Harmony Kingdom Reference Guide" by Leanna Barron (2002), page 214.
