Faience Terracotta Roof Cat
Dimensions:W: 43cm (16.9")H: 19cm (7.5")D: 21cm (8.3")
A wonderful rare faience terractta roof cat.
A fantastic piece in glazed terractta with green glass eyes, originally made to deter vermin & attatched to roof top tiles. The lead glaze has a beautiful cracked finish & the underside of the cat has a series of holes used for mounting the piece to a roof top tile or post. Not marked but almost certainly manufactured by the iconic Mensil De Bavent Pottery Co of Normandy, France. A superb example with bags of character!
Likely mid 20th century
Wear commensurate with age, a few minor imperfections but very good overall overall.
