Out of this world Modernist approach to a figural cat! Hobe designed this "wired cat" brooch with the simple use of wirework to accomplish a fine looking Kitty with oodles of personality. The brooch is made of two types of twisted gold wire that resemble real gold but are most likely filled.. one smooth and the other textured. The result is stunning! Eyes and mouth are accomplished with prong set rhinestones in turquoise and black. This guy is quite large and measures 2 3/4" by 1 3/4" and is marked on the reverse with the Hobe logo in round plaque. Mid-Century Modern. Condition is superb.
