Whiskered Cat Brooch | Hallmarked Sterling Silver
A fantastic fun brooch, superbly cast in solid sterling silver with embossed features and contrasting oxidised centre. This brooch has a striking three-dimensional effect, with swishing tail and silver wire whiskers. At 12 grams of solid silver this is a substantial piece best suited to heavier clothing, secured with the well-made pin and roll-over clasp on the rear. Also on the rear can be found a full set of Assay Office hallmarks.
Every brooch from Thrilled Kitty comes in a luxury ribboned gift box, ready to make the perfect present for the cat-lover in your life.
Approximate Dimensions: 4.2cm x 4.5cm (at the longest/widest point)
Condition Report: A modern piece in excellent condition. The silver has been professionally cleaned and polished to a fine bright finish (excluding the deliberately oxidised accents which are intentionally added to bring out the detail of the casting), but please remember that, as a soft metal, silver is always liable to show some slight marks and fine scratches from handling when inspected closely, even when brand new.
Please be sure to view all of the photographs to fully appraise the condition. If you would like any further information on this piece please send us an email, quoting the name of the item in your message.
Material: Sterling Silver
Marks: 925 purity mark for sterling silver on right rear side. On the left rear side can be found a tiny full set of hallmarks. From left to right are the Sponsor’s Mark (TS) and Fineness Mark (925); the next two marks have not struck clearly but we believe them to be (making a best guess under magnification) the Traditional Fineness Symbol and Assay Office Mark for the Edinburgh Assay Office.
