This ¾” thick The Octagon is hand screen printed on the front with a short description on the back. It is part of a four-piece series called Virginia Dynasty Series, created by Cat’s Meow founder, Faline Jones, in her eighteenth year of business. This series was introduced on March 1, 2000 and retired on December 31, 2002.
The Octagon was built starting in 1799 for Colonel John Tayloe III. When the White House burned down during the War of 1812, James and Dolley Madison moved to The Octagon, which is just two blocks from the presidential mansion.
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.
