This reserved and quizzical cat silver animal pin looking directly at the viewer has been adapted from an Edward Gorey illustration for Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats by T.S. Eliot. Gorey created all of the drawings for the 1982 edition of this book of poems on cats, on which the musical, Cats, was based. In the complete drawing, the cat is resting on an elaborate tuffet on a page at the end of the chapter entitled "The Naming of Cats". The Cozy Cat is part of Laurel Elliott's whimsical jewelry collection.
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.
