This ¾” thick Molly Pitcher is hand screen printed on the front and a short description on the back. It is an accessory piece of an eight-piece series of buildings called Series XVII, Revolutionary War Series, created by Cat’s Meow founder, Faline Jones, in her seventeeth year of business. This series was introduced on January 1, 1999 and retired on December 31, 2003.
Some women joined their husbands on the front lines and they are collectively known as Molly Pitcher. One woman, Mary Ludwig-Hays, was best known for taking a pitcher of water to her husband's battery during the Battle of Monmouth in 1778.
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.
