Vintage Sunday: Amazing (Creepy) Plate-Cat

Amazing Vintage Plate-Cat

Have you seen my new amazing vintage find?! This plate kills me – it’s a kitty inside a plate. It’s an actual (well, not actual-actual, that really would be creepy), 3D fuzzy kitty with a tiny heart nose and toy eyes – under glass. The man at the charity shop implied that he’d seen these before, but I certainly haven’t – is this, like, a thing I don’t know about?! I’m calling it a plate-cat, because it’s just so much more than a cat on a plate, don’tcha think?

There’s just so, so much to love about this ridiculous object, but my favorite might be that the Eyes. Don’t. Match. Seriously – check out the close-up above – they’re different eyes!!

Oh, the happiness. Best vintage find EVER.

    That is somewhere far beyond creepy. It looks like it came straight out of a horror story! Never seen or heard of these before… good find, though!

      Haha! Now if only I could find a plate with a Gizmo trapped inside! My inner 8-year-old would be so happy about that.

    I’ve got the same plate I brought my mom 25 years ago and it’s still here to thus day in good Nick. I brought it for 1 pound then I’d love to know how much it’s worth now
