A truly unique figure in American art and illustration, Gorey's carefully executed drawings depict a mythical world in a style that is instantly recognizable. Cat Composing a Poem is a wonderful example of his whimsical drawings about various improbable activities of cats. Gorey was definitely a cat lover and his drawings appeal to cat lovers as well as to lovers of the charmingly absurd. His signature is engraved on the back.
Sterling silver will retain its luster for years and frequent wearing of your jewelry will help prevent tarnishing. We recommend polishing your sterling silver jewelry with a dry silver polishing cloth available at most grocery or hardware stores. We do not recommend polishing with silver polish as this may remove the antiquing. When you are not wearing your jewelry, storing your silver in the jewelry bag in which it came will help prevent tarnishing.
