"Who IS this hep cat", you say ??
He is one very COOL cat.
I spotted him at a sale held in the gymnasium of the Mother Lode Christian School in Tuolumne, and had to bring him home.
He is marked on his underside "Holiday In Calif. 1963". He is painted gold (quite the REGAL shade), with the most gorgeous cobalt blue glaze on his face and on his "insides".
I think he's just about the coolest cat EVER.
