Large 1950s Brayton Laguna Pottery Cat Figurine - Masked Siamese
From one of the more well-known California pottery companies of the mid-century era, this large Brayton Laguna Beach pottery figurine resembles a masked Siamese cat, finished in burnt orange and brown glaze. Note the cut-out eyes that, with the facial mask, almost gives the cat a piercing alien staring glare. A most unusual cat figurine that would be a delightful addition for any collection.
Measures 8-1/2 inch high, to the tip of the ear, and 8-1/2 inch long, nose to tail.
Incised marks on the underside are Brayton's Laguna Beach Cal. 41-42, a marking style believed to date this to the 1950s.
In great condition, with no chips or cracks, and only a tiny nick in the glaze and subtle crazing to the glaze on the hip.
