Cheshire Cat

inscription:  "He grins like a Cheshire cat chewing gravel"

size:  85mm (height) x 85mm (length) x 45mm (width)

matching arms:  Cheshire

notes:  The model, which was illustrated and listed as a new model in the 9th edition of The Goss Record, can be found both glazed and unglazed and is normally uncoloured apart from the black eyes. It carries the above inscription around the edge of the base as can be seen in the photograph and in addition is usually marked with the word `Copyright' on the base. There is also a version bearing rather crude colouring about the cat's face, though this is generally accepted to have been produced after the Goss family sold the pottery.

The arms of towns and cities in Cheshire are considered by some to be matching.
