Catalogue No: A050
A stunning example of an early Staffordshire cat, modelled sitting on a raised, relief moulded base. Very well decorated in vivid childlike brushstrokes of black, ochre and purple. The eyes, the only facial feature decorated, picked out with tiny black dots. Sublime.
Approx - 3.5 inches (90mm) tall.
In very good condition throughout with some paint losses to the base and a tiny firing crack to the right ear.
