RSPCA Kittens

Rare vintage RSPCA collection box depicting 3 kittens sitting atop a brick pillar, each with a milk bottle (with a slot in for donations to be given by the general public). This piece dates from circa 1950-1970, and would have been placed inside a shop as it is made from a fibreglass and papier-mache mix. Even has the rear plate, which enclosed the box to stop people from helping themselves to the donations. Emblazoned with the message 'RSPCA Thank You' across the front. Only minor damage to the corners of the top of the pillar (see pics), but in otherwise amazing condition for its age. Completely original!

Measures: 75cm tall x 40cm wide x 25cm deep
