been wondering about this dear little pussy cat: it appears to be made of lead…. If so it
should not be given to a small child – it case (as will doubtless happen) it
gets shoved into some orifice or other and poisoning will ensue.
scenario is that it is made of bronze and was once painted – in which case it
is Austrian and dates from around 1900ish.
Or it could
be Victorian or even Roman…. Who knows?
it is a pleasing little creature which will give great joy to anyone who likes
that sort of thing….
