BESWICK English figurines need no introduction,
but what is so special about this cat is the
RARE and extremely popular "Swiss Roll" pattern.
Cute kitten sits looking up at you with quiet interest.
Base color is odd - I don't know what to call it -
it's kind of a greenish-grayish-light brown.
If you love cats, you'll love this kitty!

Every week, I get eMails after auctions end, from buyers who are kicking themselves
for waiting to the last second to bid, who then, for one reason or another, "didn't get a chance" to bid.
The fact is, waiting to the end for the best deal is a MYTH -
the MAJORITY of "WATCHERS" end up not bidding at all - and you can't win that way!
It is NAIVE to believe you will be that ONE person who REMEMBERS TO, and CAN bid at the end;
it is much more likely you will be one of those mentioned in the first line above...
If you WANT this item, the smartest course is to
Some people seem to have the idea that it's OK to bid on an auction, then later (sometimes days later,
even when the auction is about to end ) change their mind, and retract their bid.
This is AGAINST eBay rules ,
and I very much dislike people tampering with my auctions in this way, so
my policy is to BLOCK anyone who does this from all future bidding on any of my auctions.
Please, DO NOT BID unless you MEAN IT!
