Vtg Roland Emett Signed H.M.S. PUSSIEWILLOW 1 A Celestrial Cats’ Cradle Ex Cond

Signed by the artist:  R. Emett in blue ink with a blue line beneath the signing….

Written on the poster:

H. M.S. PUSSIEWILLOW  

A Celestrial Cats’ Cradle,  crewed by those intrepid travellers, The Owl & The Pussiecat,  in their rose strewn pea-green boat.  

The whole proclaiming that age old truism:  “Pro bono pussiquet gloy floribunda” 

(Stick to pussiecats and roses and all’s well) 

About the artist:  

In 1947 his cartoons came to life on the stage of the Globe Theatre, London, in “Between the Lines”, a scene for Laurier Lister’s revue Twopence Coloured, with Max Adrian as an eccentric signalman at Friars Fidgeting Signal Box. In 1951, at the Festival of Britain, his most famous steam locomotiveNellie, was made into a copper and mahogany kinetic sculpture and with two other locomotives, Neptune and Wild Goose, was one of the festival’s most popular attractions, operating the Far Tottering and Oyster Creek Branch Railway. There was a fatality when two trains collided. At this time he was living in Cornwall and working in a studio in a boat-loft at Polperro; later he returned to West Cornwall before settling for the rest of his life at Ditchling, in Sussex.

 

He died on 13 November 1990 in a Sussex nursing home.

We have done our research and can not find this poster on the web.

We are the original owners.  

It was a gift to us in the 1970’s from the owner of The Coach House Gallery in Indian Village,  Detroit, Michigan.  The owner was from England and it is our understanding that the artist and the owner were indeed friends.
