Gretchen is a handmade miniature original, one-of-a-kind cat art doll, hand painted and hand sculpted in paperclay by artist Max Bailey.
Gretchen is a silver tabby American Shorthair kitten with big captivating eyes.
Gretchen is charming and good natured. She loves to be told stories, and makes up some pretty good fairy tales herself.
In her stories, she is always the princess, or the heroine, or both, and always saves the day.
Gretchen tells her stories in the parlor, sitting on her green brocade upholstered chair.
She wears a lovely green dress with a paler green collar edged in gold, that has a big rosy rose right in the front.
Gretchen is a one-of-a-kind work of art, and is meant for display only.
She was sculpted from paperclay in multiple stages, to allow for drying and detailing.
Gretchen was painted under a magnifying light, with tiny brushes, one hair at a time.
She is signed and sealed with matte varnish for protection and preservation, and comes with a certificate of authenticity.
Gretchen is 1:12 scale. (One inch equals one foot.) She is 1 and 1/2 inches tall.
Update: Gretchen has been adopted. Thank you!
