This ¾” thick Tennent Church is hand screen printed on the front and a short description on the back. It is part of a 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.
British General Harry Clinton brought his men through New Jersey so they wouldn't be attacked by sea, but Washington's men sprung an attack on them. Tennent Church was the temporary field hospital of this battle. The patriots' blood still stains and marks from the surgeon's saw have left scars on the pews. Many men are buried in this churchyard.
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.
