This collection is from American ceramic, pottery, clay artist Tom Hatton. Hatton's pieces are unique and beautiful and "Made in the USA ". Some bear a striking resemblance to Kliban's cat characters.

Kliban Cat the black and white striped cat cartoon character was made famous by cartoonist B. Kliban, beginning with the book "CAT" in about 1975, before Garfield the cat. Most people are familiar with Kliban's cats; to name a few t's Sneaker Cat, Mom Cat, Chef Cat, Love a Cat, Tuxedo Cat, Crazy Cat, Fat Cat, and Super Cat; from the cat who plays guitar and sings the mousie song and wears red sneakers or tennis shoes to Skatey Cat wearing roller skates, and others that surf, hike, ski ... you name it. The whimsical Kilban pieces to be auctioned range from ceramics to glass to linens to Crazy Shirts Hawaii, two-sided graphics, T-Shirts & Sweatshirts and other clothing items; tote bags, books, Hallmark Christmas ornaments, paper, plastic, and lacquer items, stuffed animals, [plush, beanie,] bedding, household & kitchen products, jewelry, and many, many other collectible items.

Most of the Kliban items were either "Made in the USA ", England , Taiwan , or Japan , not made in China . These pieces would make great gifts for birthdays, the holidays or any occasion.

My third collection for auction may be of interest to die hard Kliban collectors [you know who you are] ... who also love Kliban's nemesis Alley Cat, Tom Cat, from Takahashi , Japan 's Kliban Cat.
