- Details: Such an adorable white cat! This is part of a collection of hinged boxes by Andrea by Sadek, all delightful, all high quality. This one is the white cat, he sits on a brown box, finished to look like wood, but it’s all done on porcelain with a high shine glaze. The box is in the style of the famous Limoges French trinket boxes, with a gold metal hinge, but this one from Sadek is a collectible in its own right. The bottom is stamped with the numbers 8681 and this one still retains its original foil sticker which reads: “Andrea by Sadek, Made in Japan”. If you’re looking for a special gift box, this would be a wonderful choice, especially for a cat lover! Great accent piece for a bookshelf, curio, or side table.

Andrea by Sadek was founded in 1936 by Charles and Norman Sadek and it is still family owned. It is also known as Charles Sadek Import Company and they are headquartered in New Rochelle, New York. Charles named the company Andrea in honor of his daughter, who is still involved in the design of their products. After WWII Norman Sadek started trade with Japan an inspired Japanese factories to produce higher quality products. You can still find, if rarely, Andrea by Sadek products in the market with the stamp “Occupied Japan”. Sadek is a leader in the gift and tableware industry, they have beautiful porcelain products such as: flowers, birds and other figurines, as well as salt and pepper shakers, tea sets and tea accessories, lamps, dinnerware and much more. Sadly in November, 2010, Norman Sadek passed away. Today his son Jim, along with his wife, and Norman’s daughters Andrea and Lauren, all run the company. Their team of product development, designers, researchers and buyers, uses its vast resource of factories throughout the world to bring together a collection that remains, as it has for decades, unsurpassed by any other source. The porcelain collections, while rooted in tradition, presents many contemporary design elements, and so reaches the hearts and homes of each new generation of consumers.
