What happened to these two cats?

Click to enlarge the pics.

These two giant cats used to stand outside the main door to this building - it's the Black Cat Factory in Camden, North London.

The factory was built as a cigarette factory at the height of the Tutankhamen-and-all-things-Egyptian craze in 1926 but the original cats disappeared (and were replaced with copies) when the building was converted into offices in 1961. I worked for a short time there in the 80s, hence my interest.

Can anyone find out where the original cats went? And who has got them now? I'd love to know. They are probably worth a few bob now. That's not why I am interested but, erm, if anyone can find out how much they are worth...
