Star Spangled Banner 200th Anniversary
This "glittery bombs bursting in air" Cat's Meow piece commemorates the 200th Anniversary of our national anthem, the Star Spangled Banner. The words were penned by Francis Scott Key after he observed the battle of Baltimore from a British ship on the night of September 13, 1814. A small storm flag flew at the fort during the night battle, but in the morning when Key awoke he was greeted with a much larger flag flying proudly over Fort McHenry. On board the ship that next morning, Key was moved to write a poem about the battle, using the only thing available, a letter he kept in his pocket.
Measures 4" x 4" and 3/4" thick. Wood.
The Cat's Meow Village started in Wooster, Ohio, in 1982 with one simplistic wooden house handcrafted by owner and creator, Faline Jones. Almost 35 years later, Jones and her “crew” continue to design "little wooden buildings" of local, national, and international landmarks that spark memories and bring smiles to the faces of “real life adventurers” like you.
Celebrate your favorite places by including these 3/4" thick wooden keepsakes in your home décor. A few favorite spots where Cat’s Meows like to reside are: perched on top of your window and door trim, tucked into your bookshelves, or sprawled across your fireplace mantle.
