Cat About Town Sterling Silver Pin
Adapted from Edward Gorey's title page illustration for AMPHIGOREY.
- 1-3/8" wide x 1-1/2" long
This welcoming cat animal pin, who we've named 'Cat About Town' because of the ease of his manner, has been adapted from Edward Gorey's title page illustration for AMPHIGOREY - Fifteen Books by Edward Gorey: a compilation of books published between 1953 and 1965. Part of our whimsical jewelry collection. In the complete drawing, the cat, in a striped T-shirt, is shown balancing flags on his head that spell out the title of the book. The absurdity of this cat standing upright with arms widespread will amuse the owner and the viewer every time it is worn.
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.
