This piece of 3 Dimensional Mid Century Modernist Silver jewelry was created by the QUALITY silver jewelry company BEAU as part of their Sculptural line "BEAUCRAFT". Vintage Cat Pin (possibly a Siamese?) has a 3 Dimensional appearance and a deliberately Dull finish with “blackened” ~ oxidized highlights – similar to Danish pewter jewelry. Feline jewelry is also similar to pieces by the well-known jewelry company “ORB” - Otto Robert Bade (who worked as a designer for Rebajes before he went out on his own).
Regal Looking Sleek sitting kitty cat look has 'slits' for eyes, a small hole for its nose, applied 'wire' whiskers and an amazing curvy (fluffy?) tail! This maintenance-free kitty would not object to being worn on your favorite coat, sweater, blazer, jacket, hat, purse, satchel or dress.
GREAT Looking 60 +/- Year Old silver accessory MEASURES just shy of 2 1/2 Inches Tall, a Max of ~ 7/8 Inches Wide. It is clearly Marked 'BEAUCRAFT STER' on the Reverse. You will find this completely hypoallergenic cat to be in VERY NICE CONDITION! Designer Signed Silver accessory retains Original FULLY Functional Locking Clasp, Pin Stem & Hinge... has been gently polished/cleaned & appears to have been manufactured with a protective layer of lacquer.
Would make an OUTSTANDING Gift or Addition to your Figural, Animal, Feline~ Kitty Cat or Scandinavian ~ Danish Modern jewelry Collection!
