Awesome I love these cats which started out as three
I gave one to a friend for good luck
Since then I have wandered if they were special.
I don't know what they are made from. They appear to be extremely old.
No marks that I see
Their is a open hole on the bottom
Does that mean they are pre Columbia or Indian artifact
I need your help if you have a lead on these cats
They are 4 inch and three inch tall

Mystery Solved

    The hole in the bottom has nothing to do with who made them or where they may have originated. These cats aren't artifacts, aren't very old and weren't made by Native Americans and are not Pre-Columbian.

    These are black pottery molded cat figures, maker unknown. Scroll down the page to see the full set. There are four photos.
