This was passed down to me through the family. I'm pretty sure it is cast iron and probably had whiskers at one time. Other than that I don't know much about it. It's tiny- about 3/4 inch by 1 inch. Most of it's paint has come off. I get a kick out of her!

    I think what you have is a "Cold Painted Vienna Bronze" you may want to lool at this site

    Thanks Dean for your input. I don't have any plans to let her go, besides she barely takes up any space!
    Thanks Scandi, cute and she keeps the prowlers away :)

    Beautiful-- I didn't look earlier because I thought it was a modern resin cat.

    I am glad that I looked!

    The tip of the tail sure looks like bronze to me.
