Customer Question
Modlin LA blue cat...

Modlin LA blue cat figurine with the number 5 on the bottom...wondering if this is valuable and worth.

Expert's Assistant: Don't you just love the idea of finding something valuable in your attic? I do, but I think all I have up there is junk my brothers abandoned before they left home. Always a good idea to check things with the Antiques Appraiser, though. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

It is in perfect condition
