There were 10 pieces included in the 1984 Series II (2).

This series includes the trademark Casper the Black Cat, and they are still made with the early production methods that used, real wood, hand-painting, and individually stamped piece info and signature.

The pieces were:

  • Millinary/Quilt Shop

  • Tobacconist/Shoemaker Shop
  • S & T Clothiers Shop
  • Church
  • Eaton House
  • Music Shop
  • Town Hall

Once more it is easy to see this series still demonstrates the early development of the company:

  • The painted appearance of these Series II pieces still show the primitiveness of the hand-painted designs

Note: As told in “The history of CMV”, this first series came about due to the prompting of the two gift shop owners that helped Faline Jones launch the Cat’s Meow Village Collections. You can see the full history story from the tab at the top of this page.

    • Greetings Sharon,
      With very few exceptions, your pieces are worth their value to you only. You may get lucky and find a buyer willing to pay the $12-$20 retail price, but probably not. They are selling on ebay for 99 cents now.
