Doulton Souter Signed Kateroo Mischiveous Cat Breaking Crockery Motto

This is a darling plate which I have treasured for many, many years, but I am starting to downsize and reassessing those pieces I want to keep on display.

I am not a cat fanatic, just thought it was adorable, so this can go to someone who appreciates cats and their wiley ways more than do I.

This is a famous Souter Cat, Kateroo, who had his own comic strip back in the day, and was a famously wicked cat!

This 4 1/2" plate shaws Kateroo regarding with no remorse a pitcher he has just shattered, and has a wonderful motto off to the right side:

'GOD BLESS THE CAT THAT BREAKS THE CROCKS

IN PIECES VERY SMALL

FOR THINGS LIKE THAT ARE GOOD FOR TRADE

AND BENEFIT US ALL."

As I sold a lot of china in my day, I really appreciated that sentiment!

This is in completely excellent condition, with no damage at all, no crazing or glaze misses, etc.

This has a slightly scalloped edge bordered in red, and is marked in black on the reverse, and was evidently a give away from Gray's China Hall, Chatham Ontario, Canada.

You will have to laugh when you hold this in your hand, I know it has always made me smile!
