Winifred is an original folk art cat doll, hand sculpted in paperclay and hand painted by artist Max Bailey.

She is a sweet little tabby cat who loves company.

She always rushes to answer the doorbell with a plate of freshly baked cookies.

“Please, have a cookie,” she will say, whether her visitor is a neighbor, the mailman, or a total stranger. It is very important to Winifred to extend her hospitality.

"Please visit again soon,” she will always say, with her pretty little kitty smile.

Winifred is wearing a dress the color of burnt orange, with a pale orange ruffle at the neck and sleeves. Her matching sash ties in the back in a big bow. Little blue flowers with yellow centers decorate her dress, and her white petticoats can be seen below her hemline.

Her fur is painted in a multitude of tabby colors…silver gray, buff, ivory, and gold, with black stripes. Her yellow eyes have a touch of green, and her white whiskers are made from stiffened cotton thread.

Winifred is an original one-of-a-kind work of art, and she is meant for display only. No molds are ever used in my work. She and her plate of cookies are hand sculpted from paperclay, and entirely hand painted using acrylic paints.

Winifred is signed and dated, and sealed with matte varnish for protection and preservation. She rests firmly on a turned wooden base that is stained and sealed in golden oak.

Winifred stands 6 and 1/2 inches tall.

Winifred comes with a hang tag, a certificate of authenticity, and a copy of her story.

Many hours go into the making of each of our dolls. We strongly believe in fine craftsmanship and artistry, and we pay great attention to small details. Each doll is a unique work of art, and we are able to produce them in only a very limited number. We do our best to create little dolls with big personalities because that is what we love to do.

If you decide to adopt Winifred, she will come to you carefully packaged and delivered by Priority Mail, insured, with Delivery Confirmation, within the United States.

We accept PayPal, money orders, and cashier’s checks. There’s a waiting period for checks to clear. Please contact us within 3 days if you are mailing payment. Payment is expected within 7 days.
