This unique made-to-order-only sculpture, Owl & the Pussy Cat cake topper, is perfect for that couple who is about to launch themselves onto the sea of life or for the couple who has been voyaging together for some time and celebrating their anniversary. The "beautiful pea green boat" is a hand painted dried gourd, the lantern is made of beads and the owl and pussy cat are sculpted out of paper clay and painted. The boat is complete with a "jar of honey and a bag of money". I have the boat balanced on some pieces of sea glass loosely arranged. The boat is approximately 6" long and the sculpture is about 3 1/4" tall (without the sea glass). Your cake topper will not be identical to this one. Allow 2 weeks for it to be created and 2 weeks shipping depending on where you live.

Keep in mind that this item will be made especially for you and won't look identical to the item pictured. If you want to specify the coloring of the cat or the specify the type of owl, I will do my best to honor your request. The boat may be shaped a little differently, or a little smaller and the characters will be made to fit the boat. If you are in the UK, allow at least 2 weeks for shipping. We can discuss expedited shipping if you need it more quickly. It is helpful if I know the exact deadline for your cake topper at the time of purchase.

The Owl and the Pussycat
Poem by Edward Lear:

The Owl and the Pussy-cat went to sea
In a beautiful pea green boat,
They took some honey, and plenty of money,
Wrapped up in a five pound note.
The Owl looked up to the stars above,
And sang to a small guitar,
'O lovely Pussy! O Pussy my love,
What a beautiful Pussy you are,
You are,
You are!
What a beautiful Pussy you are!'

Pussy said to the Owl, 'You elegant fowl!
How charmingly sweet you sing!
O let us be married! too long we have tarried:
But what shall we do for a ring?'
They sailed away, for a year and a day,
To the land where the Bong-tree grows
And there in a wood a Piggy-wig stood
With a ring at the end of his nose,
His nose,
His nose,
With a ring at the end of his nose.

'Dear pig, are you willing to sell for one shilling
Your ring?' Said the Piggy, 'I will.'
So they took it away, and were married next day
By the Turkey who lives on the hill.
They dined on mince, and slices of quince,
Which they ate with a runcible spoon;
And hand in hand, on the edge of the sand,
They danced by the light of the moon,
The moon,
The moon,
They danced by the light of the moon.
