J.J. Pewter Cat & Mouse Figural Pin Brooch
This is an amusing vintage cat brooch by J.J., Jonette Jewelry Co.. This whimsy pin brooch is made of textured pewter metal. The cat and mouse are very detailed. The mouse is ticked off about being caught. The brooch measures approximately 2-3/8" across by 2-5/8" tall. It is signed J.J. on the back. Excellent condition
J.J. started their business early in the 1900's, but were forced to close their doors a few years ago due to foreign competition. J.J.'s Founder was Abraham Lisker, who started the company in 1935 in Providence, RI as the Providence Jewelry Company. The name changed later to Lisker and Lisker, and finally to Jonette Jewelry Company. The costume jewelry they created tends to be quirky, many done in pewter wash. They are also known for figural pins and Christmas pins. Their mostly whimsical designs of animals and people are a sheer delight.
