Description: Waiting for your purchase is this charming vintage cat bank, made in MEXICO and hand painted and signed by the artist. I cannot quite make out the signature, but you can see it for yourself in my photos. The cat is large, measuring 10 inches tall. Its overall color is a light aqua blue. Its eyes are white with black dots, and the details of its face are done in black. It is very detailed--the whiskers are painted on and there are tiny black dots on the mouth. Even the ears are lined with black to appear furry. The cat wears a bright red shirt, ringed with 2 rows of black teardrops or watermelon seeds at the neck. Below the shirt is a wide white belt, and finally there is a green skirt or shorts. These are the national colors of Mexico--red, white, and green. The legs and paws are outlined in black and highlighted with yellow triangular stripes. The back of the ears are red. The back of the head has 4 bright yellow flowers with red centers. The cat is seated and wears a pleasant, whimsical expression. There is a slit or coin slot between the black dots on the back. There is no plug on bottom, however, to keep the coins contained. Apparently, the cat can be used more as a figurine than a bank. Either way, it is a cutie---very well done with lots of great details. If you collect cat figures or Mexican pottery, you can't resist this guy!
