Here is a Harmony Kingdom Limited Edition from the Clair de Lune Series that was released in June 2000. There were two versions made of this box figurine; this one is called "Colette & Cat". Each figure in this series has a back story, and Colette's story is that she became a ghostwriter for a former princess's memoirs, and made friends with the Left Bank literati. Colette became the thinly disguised heroine of at least six novels and scores of memoirs. Colette's own memoirs were banned in the USA, but sell well in France.
This box figurine features Colette taking a bubble bath in a very ornate bathtub decorated with fish. The tub is gold trimmed with silver. Colette's cat is holding on to her arm that has reached out for a towel. Remove the top of bubbles and you will find Colette wearing a bikini and a gold necklace. This figure was retired in 2001.
The Clair de Lune Series features a collection of voluptuous women and well-coifed cats by master carver Julie Bharucha. Each detailed sculpture opens to reveal a hidden compartment containing vignettes appropriate to 1920's Paris. There are two versions of each figure: one is shown with a cat, and the other is a more adult theme with a madame in her boudoir. Crafted with crushed marble, then hand painted and tinted, each Box Figurine in this series is unique. Each is individually numbered and signed with the initials of Martin Perry, the owner of Harmony Kingdom. The bottom is hand numbered, and this one is #2562 out of 3600.
"Colette & Cat" is in new condition, and will come in the original box, with a brochure about the series.
SIZE: 5 inches x 3.5 inches x 2.5 inches high
