What a face on this fabulous little folk art cat! He or she really looks to be pondering deep thoughts--or perhaps very seriously eyeing a mouse nearby. The eyes on the wonderfully carved, slightly wonky face appear to be stained or painted very dark brown or black while the rest is a warm, reddish brown. Signed with what I think is PM on the bottom.
2" tall with tail x 2 1/4" l x 15/16" d. There is a little cracking to the wood on the front side, minor. It seems possible that the very tip of the tail is missing, but it is a little hard to tell; the tip shows the same color as the rest.
