Product Details


History

Kitty Tamer and Quick Draw, two jumbo Italian ornaments from the De Carlini workshop, were introduced as part of the 1994 & 1995 Christopher Radko Collection.  Smaller versions of each cartoon character were original De Carlini styles.  Christopher Radko super-sized them to 11".  Because of their size, breakage in shipping was significant.  And then, not everyone wants an 11" ornament on the tree!  These two factors led to a scarcity of these 1994 versions.

Soffieria De Carlini is responding to collector requests, reprising this popular design from the 1960s and 1970s in a 6" version.  It pays homage to to Christopher Radko’s 1994 “jumbo" version.

The Ornament Design

Kitty Tamer pays homage to old-time circus entertainment.  He is a bow-legged black and white cat, dressed as the circus ring master.  He wears a traditional red jacket and shiny black boots.  His yellow tail curls around his body.  Of course, he wields a long-handled whip should an unruly lion try to break ranks!
