Edwardian Playful Cats Novelty Brooch
* * SOLD * *
A charming Edwardian-era novelty brooch, modeled substantially in 14k yellow gold, depicting a pair of kitties at play! These sweet cats are realistically rendered in three dimensions, with beautifully-textured fur details, and emerald cabochon eyes; each cat wears a little collar and a twisted wire leash. Our feline friends are nearly symmetrical— they face one another, and each bats around a luminous, white seed pearl "ball." The playful movement captured by the carver, here, is really special, and we love the elegance of the nearly identical (but not quite identical) two-figure composition! This brooch is finished with a high color bloom. It is marked 14k for purity.
