FurFest Prototypes

FurFest was carved by Master Carver Peter Calvesbert in 2007 and released just in time for the annual in-store event that year. There are four (4) versions of this piece, and this auction brings you the prototypes of three (3) of them. (We don't have the Jeweled Version, sorry!)

 

FurFest HK Secrets:

“As soon as the Christmas tree comes out of the attic, our cat LG is preparing himself for the ascent. The baubles are just too irresistible. ‘Furfest’ shows what eight cats climbing a tree might be like. Are they searching for a mouse (disguised as the angel on top of the tree)? If you happen to receive the mold variation, you’ll notice a ‘deliberate’ error. When the mouse angel was changed to a cat angel, I forgot to remove the mouse tail so the cat has two tails! A contented Santa can be found inside all of the versions, with a second mouse hiding under a present. My name is under a branch and so is the name of our new kitten Lucy. The initials TB51 can be found on the lid. I still cannot recall what this means. Tony Blair is not 51 so I’m stumped. If you have any ideas, let me know”! Peter Calvesbert

**Jeweled Piece [Edition Size 1] This is a one-of-a-kind box figurine, adorned with gemstones. The piece is painted by Peter himself and features the rare mold variation with cat tree topper.

This version has golden ornaments, and Peter’s signature mouse is disguised as an angel at the top of the tree.

[Color Variation]
This version has both gold and red ornaments, and the tree topper angel is a mouse.
**Version #2: Edition Size 250
