Here we have a very rare seated cat. Pottery cats are not found as often as dogs which are more plentiful.
This would have been crafted by a master potter who did an excellent job of modeling the cat including the detail in the eyes and whiskers. The cat sits upright on a raised base that is hollow on the underside. Measuring 8 ½ to the top of its ears, the cat is a survivor with darkened chips around the edge of the base, a small chip on one of the ears and a glaze rub on the cats nose.
There is no other damage or any repairs to the cat. This was probably played with by many children over the cats long life time. This is a very rare form not appearing in any of the books on collecting yellow ware.
