Cat’s Head Creamer, early-20C, porcelain, 4 inches high.
In an unusual twist on cats and their love of cream, liquid
spewing from the cat’s mouth of this green creamer created an entertaining spectacle for young Edwardian children for whom it was designed. Perhaps, a little too realistic, the modeling of the cat’s head and crouched form is reminiscent of a cat coughing up a hairball. The creamer’s handle shaped as a cat’s tail continues the feline theme.
