Vintage Fraunces Tavern from New York Christmas Series handcrafted from 3/4" thick wood by The Cat's Meow Village in the USA

4.875" x 5"

This ¾” thick Fraunces Tavern is hand screen printed on the front and back. It is part of a four-piece series of buildings called New York Christmas Series, created by Cat’s Meow founder, Faline Jones, in her thirteenth year of business. This series was introduced on June 1, 1995 and retired on December 31, 1995.

In 1762 Samuel Fraunces purchased this building and turned it from a family residence into a tavern. It was frequented by patriots and generals during the mid 1700's and after the Revolutionary War, when New York City was the country's capital, Fraunces Tavern became a political hub.

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. With your purchase of this building, Faline will donate 10% to Amani Ya Juu, a fair-trade sewing and training program for marginalized women throughout Africa. Visit their website: (no wholesale orders
