Two Cats Playing With Sewing Machine, German painted metal.

I have had this piece in one of my dollhouses for many years, it is two grey striped tabby cats playing with an old treadle sewing machine.  While one cat is working the treadle the other cat is sewing a piece of white fabric with red trim while standing on a little brown stool.  

Made of heavy metal and realistically painted, it measures 2 3/8" tall, 2 1/2" wide, and 1 1/4" deep.

I could not find any markings on it, and searching the internet I only found one other

piece like it and they said it was made in Germany by Georg Heyde.

It looks to me to be complete and the only flaws I could find was some paint missing on the little stool and a few small paint chips around the top edge of the sewing machine and around the feet.

Very cute piece.
