Cat Taxidermy and Cat Paintings in the Parlor

A little visit to my Parlor ... some pictures of my collection of cat taxidermy.  I like to pair up my black cat paintings with my cat taxidermy.
One of my favorite pieces is this one of a three-eyed cat from a Freak Show.  I like it with the laughing child plaster bust and the Victorian taxidermy birds.  As a backdrop, a lovely tonalist painting of Laguna Canyon by Craig Pursley.
 A beautiful painting by Diane Hoeptner called "Full Moon Coco" along with some fun sculptural tentacle-like things in clay that I found at the Sawdust Festival in Laguna.
 I love this smash-face cat taxidermy.  It is really old - probably 1850s - from a natural history museum in Belgium.
 One of my bobcats and a Carcal cat.
 A super old Victorian leopard head.  This one has a paper mache base and crazy Frankenstein stitches-like on the bottom.  Here with another bobcat, this one catching a partridge.  Also, my 3-eyed cat painting and a painting of Morticia.
 My Victorian black cat under a glass dome.  A very fragile piece!  Along with one of my large black cat closeup paintings.
 Someone must have really cherished this sweet kitty to want to preserve it forever!

Items Just In at Pandora's Parlor - Haunted Bride-Groom Doll, Creepy Bug Jewelry and Antique Child's Coffin

Some new items just in at the Parlor ...
Hanging out with the taxidermy bats and the Gumby funeral urn niche is a very creepy, haunted Bride-Groom doll.  Extra eerie eyes on this one!
We are all stocked up on creepy crawly bugs - from earrings to paperweights!  Prices start nice and low, with earrings at only $10 a pair.
 Lots of fun medical things in the old curved glass case ...  A demented doctor statuette holding an innocent piece of candy in one hand and a huge hypodermic needle in the other!  Antique embalming bottles and old laboratory glass.  A bizarre double deer hoof ashtray and more creeping bugs and bats.
 A mini skeleton and of course, black cats.
Antique child's viewing coffin with nice old glass.  A particularly scary doll inside - hand-made of ceramic with very sharp teeth!
Vintage funeral home burial suit display piece, antique mourning picture, ornate gothic Bradley & Hubbard oil lamp base and more black cats and skulls.
 Glow in the dark bug jewelry and glassware ...
 Coffin photos and magic potions ... and skeleton keychains.
If you are in the area, stop by for a visit!

New HUGE Black Cat Paintings at Pandora's Parlor

A couple of new black cat paintings at the Parlor.  A nice big closeup of a black cat's face as you first walk into the booth, surrounded by antique funeral vases and my goth mannequin lady.
And a couple of paintings of my black cat Morticia that I had in the shop window are now on display inside the Parlor.
I like to paint the black cats against a golden background and the black and gold combo works very nicely with the macabre, gothic interior style.  If you are interested in any of these paintings, just send me an email so I can give you the prices.
