EARLY BING & GRØNDAHL/ROYAL COPENHAGEN PORCELAIN GROOMING CAT FIGURINE - SIGNED AND NUMBERED
Description: This auction is for an absolutely PRECIOUS porcelain figurine of a little grey and white cat grooming herself. The figurine is approximately 5 1/4" tall and was produced by Bing & Grøndahl prior to Royal Copenhagen's purchase of B&G in 1987. The figurine is signed "HJ," marked #2256 & states on the bottom surrounding the B&G logo "Copenhagen Porcelain Made in Denmark." The number 60 (or perhaps 90 if turned upside down) is etched into a part of the one of the cat's feet on the underside of the figure - perhaps this means 1960 but I do not know as I am not schooled in these items. The kitty is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, crazing or any other imperfections that I can find. The gentleness of the colors and the softness of the face & pose of the little cat give this figurine a delightful appeal that most assuredly grows on you. Please e-mail me if you have any questions, as I am not very familiar with Danish porcelain.
