Siamese Cat (Special Painted)

Produced 1989 only. Height 4.25 inches.


This is a specially painted Siamese gifted from Ray Bossons and given to long-time collector Doctor James Lyday in 1989 at the Atlanta, GA Bossons meeting.


Rarity - The Rarest












Dr Lyday had visited the factory and Ray Bossons home that same year. Ray had paintress Cynthia Charlesworth specially paint the Siamese a 'light grey' colour (also called the 'blue point' Siamese) instead of the usual dark brown colour.

Dr Lyday was a veterinarian for over 50 years and had probably told Ray he had a Siamese cat with this colouring. 

This rare cat is mentioned in the Bossons Book #2 on page 112, but no photographs.
