Hello and thank you for viewing. This listing is for a beautiful Arnold Print Works cat. He still has his original 1876 tag and he is in great condition. I am not sure of the age the tag is attached and not a part of the print. I know these cats were being made in the late 1800's but I have not been able to find out a definite date on the use of this lable. It is not a new cat, it was purchased at an estate sale w t were toys dating from the late 1800,s through the 1950's. You will see that he shows minimal signs of wear from the pictures which detract nothing. He is firmly stuffed with a stiff bottom to help him stand. He is beautifully detailed, he is 14" tall and 8 1/2 inches wide. This little guy will make an excellent addition to your primitive home. Shipping in the lower U.S. will be 8.95. International bidders please email before you bid for a shipping quote. Revision: I've been contacted by a collector that has informed me that this kitty is a reproduction made by another company in the 1980's. As I have stated I know only that the lable is original to the cat. Either way this is a beautiful piece to display and I never intended to mislead anyone.

I ship by U.S.P.S. Priority Mail. Tracking is included with each shipment. Shipping is based on the weight and size of the package from my zip code to yours. I do not charge a handling fee except in the instance that the item is large and fragile in which case the amount of the handling fee will be noted in the item description. If you choose an alternative shipping method that is O.K. but I cannot be responsible for any shipping that does not have tracking. Insurance is required only on large fragile items, however I do strongly suggest that you purchase insurance for all of your items as I cannot be responsible for damage that occurs during shipping. In the unfortunate eveent that damage should occur during shipping on an insured item please contact me imediately. I will send all necessary forms to you for filing your claim.

Returns : Customer service is very important to me. Most items that I list are vintage. I make every effort to list items as accurately as possible but in the event that the item should fail to meet the description please contact me within three days of receiving the item and I will make a refund. All items are shipped from my non smoking studio. However when purchasing vintage items I can never be sure if the owner was a smoker or had pets. If time and weather permit I will at times launder vintage linens before they are listed, if they have not been laundered I will state this in my listing.

Please ask questions before you bid. I am always happy to email additional pictures if needed.
