As a child my earliest recollection of literature was when my Grandmother Holcomb read "Alice in Wonderland" to my late sister and myself. One dark character in the book always held a fascination for me, the Cheshire cat. I have always wanted a figure of this dark mysterious feline.
I finally found a great Cheshire cat. It is a small English antique bronze one, manufactured about 1875-80. I discovered he lays well (but hangs over a little) on a 9", 2X4 name cut-out that was given to me for a birthday present back in 80's.
He is 4.75" long, 3.4 wide, and 4.75" from the tip of ears to the tip of his tail. His felt bottom needs replacing but other than that he is in great shape.
