This handsome cat was created using a century old craft developed in Germany during the Victorian era known as Spun Cotton. The process includes creating a wire armature and molding cotton fibers around the figurine. The cat is finished with black tempera paint and is accompanied by a hand-folded Italian crepe paper ruff.
Hand-crafted by Samantha Corcoran.
Dimensions are 5.5"High x 7.5"Long x 2.5"Wide
