Very Rare Hertwig Katzhütte Por. The green cat in a house backstamp was used from 1914 - 1945.This is a very old piece and is in excellent condition. I see no chips or cracks. However, upon further inspection, I have found evidence of a repair, which I have highlighted in the last photo. So hard to see, it was missed upon first few passes. To find a piece this old in this great of condition is rare indeed.
Please see pictures for more details. Measures just over 9" long and 7.5" tall.
