Secrets: There is no need to search for the mouse on this piece; there are 15 mice scattered about the six friendly felines who lounge on an antique chair. Inside the box lies a slice of Swiss cheese. When the lid is removed, you will find the inscription 'Dr 3 20.5.96.' This is a reference to the death of British actor Jon Pertwee, who was the third actor to play Doctor Who in the widely popular British sci-fi television show by the same name. The chairs have undergone numerous colouration changes. The first 66 chairs were brown, the next 446 were green, after which the rest were painted yellow. Hallmarks include ©, diamond, clock face with month 5, HBC logo, and Pc.

Part of a beautiful collection purchased from a former collector who never displayed her collection, this box has been carefully checked and is in perfect condition with the original box.  The outer green box shows some slight age and storage wear. ~ Jules
