      Very cool! Love the really neat look of this little drum shaped box(I don't think I've seen one before?!) It's really well sculpted too- rope designs are great. I think that kitty is guarding whatever might be held inside, he's certainly very attentive looking :)

      Colour, the drum, the feline. Special.

      Thanks everyone for your kind loves

      Thank you Damon for your wonderful comment, isn't this a cute design, this co made several animal-topped dishes but this one with the drum was really unique

      Lauren I know, how about that rope design around the drum, it's really cool and to think this was designed @ 100 yrs ago and still relevant today. The cat is very erect and watchful, nobody will be stealing those drum accessories from it or they'll be scratched lol! Fabulous comment thank you so much

      Thank you Karen for the terrific praise, yes when I saw this it felt like a very special find. It's a really well-thought-out design adding the little cat to the top drum parts, so creative, and I do love the golden amber glass - it was also made in white & blue opaline glass but transparent is always my fave

      Thomas my drummer friend, I am so delighted this is your fave piece of mine - not only the drum but a kitty too, perfect right! I think your real cat is a beauty, and love that you have a musical career - have a great BD next mo & many happy times ahead, thanx for your super comment

      Thank you sklo42 for your very nice and fun comment, yes I think this 'drummer cat' will certainly impress his or her fellow felines - it does have a rather royal bearing :)

      Lol keramikos, thanks for your great cool comment and the link about Portieux and this item, it's got a great history. There are still a few of these in amber glass floating around online, in various price ranges - I found this on the popular "e" site for a very good price, and hope you get one too

      Phil thank you for your fantastic praise as always, yes a truly rare design with alot of interesting features, I couldn't pass this one by - there was also a Portieux hunting dog topped dish I was considering but this kitty on the drum won out, it is a real eye catcher

      Thank you so much vintagelamp for your lovely comment, you have such beautiful animal items that I adore, and from a fellow animal lover I'm so flattered that you enjoyed this
