Curious Cats Small Plates
The whimsical felines on these Curious Cats Small Plates speak with their eyes, expressing a delightful range of emotions—happiness, surprise, playfulness, and, of course, curiosity. More than a collection of pretty faces, these multi-functional petite plates can serve as guest soap dishes, ring trays and amusing display pieces as well as plates for small pastries or bite-sized hors d’oeuvres. Porcelain. Hand washing recommended. Not microwavable. 3.5"dia. Set of 5.
The Smithsonian Institution holds hundreds of images of American’s most popular pet in its collections—everything from contemporary paintings, etchings and sculpture at the Smithsonian American Art Museum to Qing dynasty cat images at the Freer Gallery of Art and cat-themed accessories—like these Curious Cats Small Plates—at our National Museum of American History.
Every Smithsonian purchase will arrive with a museum provenance card explaining how it is adapted from or inspired by an object or objects in our collection.
