18" Wide 8" Tall
Artist mark: "W" and indecypherable. Sculpted
by Clem Hull and/or Walter Hull
at Tesuque, New Mexico in 1938.
According to owner Richard Thomas, "I believe
we received them either from Clem or Uncle Walter in the summer
of 1938 when the family did the Rotary Convention in Denver,
then meandered down to Santa Fe to visit Uncle Walter."
From correspondence with Robert Hull - March 1, 2005
Appearing in the March 18, 1937 edition of the Santa
Fe New Mexican is the following notice: "ROYAL SIAMESE
CAT LOST FROM VILLAGE Clem Hull is mourning the loss
of his royal Siamese cat which disappeared from the Hull residence
at Seton Village. These unusual animals are arked by black almost
human faces, black paws, buff background of fur. Anyone having
information on the cat is asked to call 1365-J"
These cats are doubtless Clems' and Walter's tribute
to Clem's loved, lost Siamese cat.
