Crepe Paper/Composition Cat (Artist and Date Unknown)

Crafter's one-of-a-kind creation.

Described as vintage but could have been made anytime.

"I believe the head is composition as it is heavier than I think papier-mache would be. Wooden body with moveable arms and leg. Note singular leg, as there is only one now. The cat may have been on a stick at one time as there is a remnant of wood by the leg. Cat measures 6 inches tall and has a painted face and head. It looks like one ear may have been touched up. There is wear to the tip of one ear. Crepe paper clothing is worn but present."
