This ¾” thick Gemeinhaus is hand screen printed on the front with a short description on the back. It is part of a four-piece series of buildings called Bethlehem Christmas Series, created by Cat’s Meow founder, Faline Jones, in her twenty-third year of business. This series was introduced in June 2005 and retired on December 31, 2005.
Gemeinhaus is quite the structure, being one of the 18 largest century log buildings that is still standing today, it is a National Historic Landmark. This building comtaining twelve rooms, dormitories and a chapel is the oldest structire in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.
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.
