FREE SHIPPING! This is my one-of-a-kind whimsical mother and daughter cat assemblage called, "Empress in Training." The mother Empress cat is training her kitten to fill her Imperial role. The mother cat's black head is a 1930's ashtray, her body a fancy Asian tea tin, her legs industrial wood bobbins painted black, her paws castors, and her tail a fancy metal coat hook. The kitten is a vintage porcelain black figurine that matches the time period and style of the mother's head. Both cats sport a hat made from brass incense burner parts. The mother cat has a gold collar made from a curtain rod loop and an embossed brass decoration. Perfect for the cat lover, lover of Asian style decor, or anyone who enjoys a whimsical sculpture. This piece is fairly large and measures 11.25" L X 16" H X 6" W. I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed creating them!
