Vintage Justice of the Peace from Series VII handcrafted from 3/4" thick wood by The Cat's Meow Village in the USA

4.25" x 4.625"

This ¾” thick Justice of the Peace is hand screen printed on the front and back. It is part of a ten-piece series of buildings called Series VII, created by Cat’s Meow founder, Faline Jones, in her seventh year of business. This series was introduced in 1989 and retired Dec 31, 1994.

From 1860 to 1914, John Loew served as Justice of the Peace in this building, located in Navarre, Ohio. The liveliest case of his career came in 1868 when William McKinley tried and won his first law suit. The trial lasted three days and over 70 witnesses were examined. 

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.
