Mid 20th Century Cat Head Charm with Emeralds in 14k Gold

A strange and wonderful mid-twentieth-century charm (or pendant), very substantially modeled, in 14k yellow gold, as cat's head! Our feline friend wears a contented expression; his ears are perked, and his eyes are set with a pair of vibrant emerald cabochons. This cat has been beautifully and expressively carved. We love the deep texture of his fur, and the long, ball-end whiskers that poke out over his little smile! This is a big, sculptural jewel— it is best worn as a pendant, on a long chain, or as a single charm on a heavy bracelet. Marked 14k for purity.
