    The Muppets "Kermit's Kitchen" Kermit and Miss Piggy Illustration (Jim Henson, 1980s). While Kermit the Frog and the Muppets are puppets, there is original artwork tied to these beloved characters that is highly coveted. The Jim Henson Company Archives says of this piece, "This is from a 1980's licensing program done with Jones New York. This painting was used for a line of housewares (kitchen towels, aprons, oven mitts etc) in three different styles. The line used Kermit, Miss Piggy, and Swedish Chef. This one-of-a-kind painting was used to introduce the Kermit section of the catalogue The line was called Kermit's Kitchen." This detailed painting of Kermit and Miss Piggy is acrylic on board, framed with glass to an overall size of 23" x 17.25", with an opening of 18" x 12". Fine Condition. A page from the Kermit's Kitchen catalog is on the reverse of the frame. Miss Piggy is a fetching 5", while Kermit is almost 4". This is one of the rarest pieces of Muppet artwork we've seen!
