Because of the hand wrought work, the pin is slightly angled, made to have the cat stand out a bit. However, it made it super hard to get a good picture of. The piece could be buffed out but in person the small lines on the piece softy catch the light and shimmer like a snowflake.
The pin is a good size and has a good balanced with to it, it's a well made brooch.
The pin is hallmarked or signed TC 153 Mexico and 925
The happy kitty measures just about 2 3/4" across from head to the tip of the tail and from the tip of the tail down it's just about 2"
Good vintage condition.
