Nightlight in the form of a cat, anoniem, c. 1760 - c. 1770

When a candle is placed inside the porcelain cat, the light shines through its eyes. The small lamp was intended for children who were afraid of the dark, but was also used to scare off rats. It comes from the collection assembled by the 18th-century Hague Sinologist Jean Theodore Royer.
