I've personally got my eye on the beautiful black cat figurines as I already have two of them and am hoping to see more in that line to add to our home's collection.
My grandmother Julia Nagy had one of the black panther cats that sat on her fireplace mantel. Now, I too have one of those on my fireplace mantel! The black panther complements the black cat of Linda LeKinff's Ellen artwork.
You can also find some Royal Haeger by Royal Hickman U.S.A. collectibles that were produced from 1938-1944 while Royal Hickman was the designer in house. Got to have this book! The House of Haeger, 1944-1969: The Post-War Era.
Allow me to introduce you to this brand of beautiful ceramics and collectibles that are made in the USA!

The Royal Haeger Black Panther of JaguarJulie
That's the cat on my fireplace mantel between a couple of Marjolein Bastin JOYs and beneath the art of Linda LeKinff!

You can see my black panther on top of my fireplace mantel. I learned about Royal Haeger originally from my grandma, Julia Nagy. Grandma's black panther sat on her fireside mantel In her Cleveland, Ohio home, she had many ceramic and pottery collectibles from Haeger Potteries.
It was grandma's ceramic black panther that made an impression on me. I'm thinking my grandma bought her black panther from a local department store. You know, there wasn't shopping online way back then.
I am pretty sure that one of my sisters claimed this figurine when grandma died. It was such a precious memory to me that I had to go out and buy my very own!
Do you know that Royal Haeger, along with Haeger Potteries, has been in operation since 1871? They are headquartered in the Midwest, northwest of Chicago, on the clay-rich banks of the Fox River. "As America's oldest and largest producer of pottery, Haeger is renowned for gorgeous glazes, the result of over four generations of development by expert craftsmen."
Perhaps you would like the Haeger Potteries Black Panther Ceramic Sculpture for yourself.
This beautiful ceramic sculpture, in an ebony glaze, of a stylized stalking panther has been a company signature piece for years. It measures a commanding size of 24 inches wide by 5 inches high by 4 inches deep. I bought mine from Amazon on August 1, 2009. I love it so much that I wouldn't mind having a second one for my home!

Beautiful Ebony Cat Sitting on My Dresser
|Royal Haeger black sitting cat porcelain figurine|
This is my second favorite Royal Haeger piece! Ah, it is a very regal feline figurine! This majestic ceramic cat, from Haeger Potteries, sits in my front artsy room that I painted with Sherwin-Williams Forget Me Not purple.
You get a little glimpse of the magnificent dresser on which it sits. In that room, I also have a lighted curio cabinet which houses my Hungarian porcelain collectibles.
Perhaps you'd like one of these black cats for yourself? The Haeger Potteries Sitting Cat Ceramic Sculpture is exquisite! I actually bought mine through Amazon on June 8, 2010. What was so impressive is how it was packaged. The porcelain cat was shrink-wrapped tightly to an inner carton within a larger outer box. There was no way it could be damaged in transport!
If you love cats like I do, you will love this sleek ebony glaze ceramic sculpture. They have stylized a cat and presented it in a sitting position. It is a bigger sculpture measuring 13 inches wide by 9 inches high by 7 inches deep.
