Mary Gates Dewey Clay Cat - ADORABLE - UNIQUE - RARE

Sold For: 

Sold Date: 07/14/2007

Mary Gates Dewey cats are handmade of clay and the colors and patterns are produced by an ancient method of firing called sawdust or pit firing. Once the piece has been bisque fired in a kiln, it is buried in sawdust and the sawdust is burned. The smoke from the sawdust produces the permanent colors in the clay. Sizes vary slightly and color patterns are random.

This Dewey cat depicts a cat sitting fat with a very bemused expression.

The cat measures 11 in. high x 11 in. broad x 2.5 in. wide.

The clay statue is hollow which gives the eyes their distinctive depth.

Very heavy item making shipping more costly but well worth it...

Delivery Confirmation ($0.75) and Insurance ($4.60) are REQUIRED on this item.
