Mid century 1960’s ceramic cheetah sculpture

A mid century- possibly 1960’s ceramic hand painted cheetah sculpture. Excellent condition except for a small chip on the nose and fracture lines throughout from age. There are no identifying marks as to who created it. It had one previous owner before it came into my possession. I believe they put the felt pads on the bottom.


7” width, 13.5” length and 16” diagonal
