100% authentic and is very beautiful. I did not attempt to clean or polish the sculpture at all. Features gorgeous natural patina with no cracks and really has an incredible look. Measures approx 25 inches tall. The base measures approx 6 x 10 1/4 inches.
The tray measures approx 8 1/2 inches round and is approx 2 1/2 inches deep. Made of brass and weighs approx 11 lbs.
From the information that I gathered from the estates family, the sculpture is at least 100 years old. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask me anytime. There is some glare in the photos that could not be avoided. The item "Antique Brass 25 Standing Cat Garden Sculpture Bird Bath Bird Feeder" is in sale since Sunday, July 1, 2018.
