Very rare Felix Kattenbroodfabriek porcelain tray from circa 1930
Felix Kattenbroodfabriek porcelain box from circa 1930. On the side you can see the logo of the company: a black cat with a round back and a raised tail. Cat bread was an idea of Pieter Herbert Verseveldt, who owned a pet shop in bird food and dog bread at Frederik Hendriklaan 204. When this new product caught on, Verseveldt was looking for an appealing name. Thanks to one of his English customers, Verseveldt decided to use the American cartoon character "Felix the Cat", a creation by Otto Messmer, as his own brand. Felix Kattenbrood, packed in striking yellow paper bags, was a fact. In mint condition.
