This ¾” thick Portland Head Lighthouse is hand screen printed on the front and back. It is part of a four-piece series of buildings called Maine Christmas Series, created by Cat’s Meow founder, Faline Jones, in her fifth year of business. This series was introduced in 1987 and retired December 31, 1987.
The Portland Head Lighthouse, authorized by President Washington, was the first lighthouse completed by the U. S. Government. It took almost three years to build and the light keeper's house was added almost 100 years after the lighthouse was completed.
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.
