Because the detail work done by P V is so impeccable, their boxes are considered among the most beautifully painted in the world. One look at the countless tiny brush strokes on this kitty cat confirms it.
It measures just under 2 1/2 inches tall by 1 1/2 inches wide by 2 inches long. It is in excellent condition, with flawless porcelain base and lid held in a brass frame with secure bow tied ribbon clasp. The hinge is original and operates well.
Best of all, this is the retired tall side facing brown tabby cat, sitting on a coral colored tuffet with black detailing. You will see black and white tabbies more often than this brown one.They seem much harder to find especially on coral bases.
