“Catherine and Chester” is a handmade original, one-of-a-kind anthropomorphic cat art doll figurine, hand painted and hand sculpted in paperclay by artist Max Bailey.
“Catherine and Chester” is an original one-of-a-kind work of art, meant for display only. No molds are ever used in my work. Catherine, Chester, and Chester’s kitty bag are hand-sculpted from paperclay, and are entirely hand-painted with acrylic paints.
Catherine wears a river blue dress with a jade green collar, cuffs, and sash tied in a big bow at the back. Pale blue flowers with jade green leaves decorate the sleeves and flow around the bottom of the skirt. Her striped orange tail emerges from her white petticoats. Catherine and Chester have whiskers made from stiffened cotton thread.
Catherine is signed and dated, and sealed with matte varnish for protection and preservation. She rests firmly on a turned wooden base that is stained and sealed in golden oak. Catherine is 9 and 1/4 inches tall. “Catherine and Chester” comes with a certificate of authenticity.
Chester’s big sister is Sunflower the Ginger Tabby Kitten, original one-of-a-kind cat art doll figurine.
