They're like two peas in a pod. These vintage Mexican cats are skillfully made into a pin by a Taxco silversmith whose hallmark is TO-57. One cat has a nice gray silver patina with enameled blue eyes while the other cat is enameled with a glossy black overlay. Both cats are carved with features made with inlaid silver wire. Very impressive work.
The pin is very solid. It measures 2 1/2 by 2 inches. It weighs 26 grams (these are hefty, well-fed cats).
The back is hallmarked TO-57 - MEXICO - 925. Back has a secure rollover clasp. Excellent condition. Circa 1970s. Any cat lover would love this one.
