Vintage 1950s/1960s Real Rabbit Fur Graduation Cat With Original Tag-smartee Kat:
Vintage 1950s or early 1960s stuffed fur cat. Cat is made of real rabbit fur. Cat is in excellent condition with no bald spots. Tail is slightly loose (but still pretty well attached), typical of many of these cats. Cat has blue glass eyes (really made of plastic), a thread nose and mouth, and pink felt ears. Underside of cat is made of plush material, rest of cat's body is covered with rabbit fur. Cat is wearing a graduation hat. Eyeglasses are a bit loose but could easily be repaired by a drop or two of glue, if desired. Still has original tag which calls this a "Smartee Kat." Tag has space to write "To" and "From" but is unused. Back of tag identifies this cat as "A Barbara Kay Original" made by the Israel Kaufman company of Nashville, Tennessee. Similar to fur cats made by The Jerrry Elsner Co. in the same era. Cat is 8" from front paws to tip of tail, 5" to top of head.Please read the information in the Payment and Shipping tab and look at all of the photos to judge the condition for yourself before buying because returns are not accepted.
