This ¾” thick Moravian Smithy House 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.
Blacksmiths used all sorts of tools from the forge and anvil, to a hammer and tongs. They were indispensable to a community because they made necessary items for the farmyard, the home and parts for transportation vehicles.
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.
