    Large Seated Cat

    Unusually Produced Cat Figurine
    A clearly pre-1908 example, with large pieces of currency throughout, including bits retaining considerable detail. This is one of the larger cats we've seen, standing over 4" high. Macerated was produced in two basic ways: in a mold that created the entire piece, and in two halves that were seamed together using macerated material. This cat has a very distinct seam running up its left side from the base to the ear, but no corresponding seam on the other side. On very close inspection, the right side may indeed have a seam, but it is so neatly done that it is nearly impossible to see. Perhaps this was a collaboration of two workers, the neat guy and the sloppy guy. In any event, its size, detail and subject matter make it an important piece. The label seems to indicate an unknown manufacturer, as it is smaller and less wordy than the others we've seen.
    From the Wade Boughton Macerated Collection
