Mexican Sterling and Abalone Cat Pin, c. 1960
A delicate, whimsical piece formed as a stretching cat, decorated with inset pieces of abalone. The shell shows no cracks or chips, and the rollover clasp is in good working order. The jagged edges of the pin give it a rough, craftsy look, and there is a bit of wayward solder on the back around the clasp. The back also bears a partial eagle 3 mark on one foot and circular makerís mark of MR; the marks look very much like those of Melecio Rodriguez, R-22, in Bille Hougartís book of Mexican silver marks. The pin measures 1 ĺ inches long by 1 1/8 inches wide. Gross weight: 3.3 grams
