An adorable 18k gold cat brooch, circa 1960's - 1970's.
This beautiful cat brooch is a unique piece.
It couldn't be more pretty and presents beautifully at every angle. The pussycat is sweet and very playful.
The details are amazing on this brooch:
His eyes in chrysoprase with very good clarity sparkle and catch the light, and little nose is in natural red coral.
He took a little bow tie beautifully enameled in green with the diamonds like a little gentleman.
His whiskers are fine and detailed as are his wonderful layers of fur and down to his paws he actually has claws and perky little playful ears.
A classic double pin clasp completes this beauty.
The brooch is in excellent condition showing only very minor inconspicuous wear of green enamel to the tie.
Material: 18kt gold marked, green agate, red coral, green enamel and 6 diamonds.
It is rather substantial weighing approximately 22.9 grams and measures 1.6 inches (4 cm) wide by 1.6 inches (4 cm) tall and 0.7 inches (1.8 cm) deep.
This stunning vintage brooch is the perfect piece for any animal lover and would make a very special gift.
