During the late 1700’s, Nantucket Island, off the coast of Massachusetts, was one of the great whaling centers of the world. This ¾” thick Maria Mitchell House is hand screen printed on the front and back as part of this four-piece series representing Nantucket Island created by Cat’s Meow founder, Faline Jones, in her fifth year of business. The Mitchells bought this house in 1816 and Maria was born there on August 1, 1818. This series was introduced in 1987 and retired Dec 31, 1992. This piece is from the 1992 production year. Look for the trademark black cat, Casper, on every Cat’s Meow Village keepsake shelf sitter. Handcrafted in the USA.
There are very limited quantities 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.
