Measurements: 2 1/4" x 2 5/8" wide x 7/8" depth - weight: 1 oz.
This fierce jungle cat is one of the best modernist costume designs I've seen in a good while: very three dimensional form with strong detail - a true statement piece. Yet, at one ounce, the brooch is easy to wear without damaging most fabrics.
The construction is two part: flat back soldered to the repousse top.
I believe that the metal is chromed brass. The nose, ear tips and other high points show the bright brass underneath.
Originally purchased in the 1960's.
