Hi Anya, I live in the UK and I own the Sevres cat sculpture by Georges Gardet that you have the postcard of on one of your past blog pages. It is going to be sold !!!!! Regards R.
@anonymous - oh my goodness! Do you really??? when and where will it be sold? Can you update me?
Hi Anya, It is going on E--- unless it can go directly to you, but I don't know how to talk to you one to one. R
Do you mean ebay? well - I rather doubt I could afford it, but I'll keep an eye out for it. Thanks for letting me know. How big is it by the way?
Yes it is ebay UK. Seven and a half inches high by ten inches wide and weighs. Approx 1.8 kg. R.
Oh - it's not that big - hmm - I have a white kitty - it would be great to have that piece. Amazing.
So sorry you didn't get the Gardet cat he is on his way to Japan.
What?? I had an alert out for when it might have gone on sale on ebay :( How much did it sell for?
£218 Uk Pounds. The last one I saw in bronze the same size, on the internet was expected to fetch about $2000 American. I was giving it away. Really hoped you would get it. I have just lost both my cats through illness and hoped this would pay for a memorial. Ebay is very expensive.
Hi Anya, Re Gardet cat my message has disappeared!Tried to get in touch.
It is here. It would have been so cool to have that cat. Oh well - it was not meant to be. I wonder where the original marble one is - now that would be something...
The end of the story. The Georges Gardet Sevres cat arrived in Japan broken, no doubt after mis-handling by the courier. I have asked for it to be sent back and will have it restored, it was a very expensive mistake for which I have paid dearly. It is going back on display at home.
