Vintage 49ers from California Gold Rush Series handcrafted from 3/4" thick wood by The Cat's Meow Village in the USA

2.25" x 3.375"

This ¾” thick 49ers is hand screen printed on the front with a short description on the back. It is an accessory of an eight-piece series called California Gold Rush Series, created by Cat’s Meow founder, Faline Jones, in her seventeenth year of business. This series was introduced on January 1, 1999 and retired on December 31, 2003.

Within a two-year period, more than 90,000 people made their way to California in search of gold. Between 1848 and 1854, over 300,000 people moved to California for the gold rush, earning them the nickname "49ers".

Look for our trademark black cat, Casper, on every Cat’s Meow. Handcrafted in our Wooster, Ohio workshop.

There are a limited number of this piece available, which is reflected in the price.
