The love of a cat
For thousands of years, people have been captivated by cats, graceful, gentle, the embodiment of elegance. Even before wild cats became domesticated, ancient cultures believed in the cat spirit animal.
Conquering their place not only in our hoses but in art, jewellery, literature and in our hearts we are proud to present this lovely playful vintage cat brooch in gold with emeralds and pearl.
Utterly charming and infused with lovely detail is this gold brooch depicting a cat while playing with a shimmering cultured saltwater pearl, combining naturalism and wit.
The gold work is textured to add life-like realism, shadow and highlights and a color and sheen both tactile and rich.
Its eyes are embellished with two round cut emeralds totalling approx .04 Ct of a beautiful green.
Artfully crafted in 9 Kt yellow gold, marked by KC, London 1973/74 ca.
Very good overall condition commensurate to use and age.
