Skating Cat Sterling Silver Pin
Adapted from Edward Gorey's back cover illustrations for AMPHIGOREY - Fifteen Books.
- 1-1/4" wide x 1-1/2" long
This animated cat animal pin has been adapted from Edward Gorey's back cover illustrations for AMPHIGOREY - Fifteen Books by Edward Gorey: a compilation of books published between 1953 and 1965. The drawing showed the cat skating with the letter P in the word Gryphoemia, a Goreyism meaning either the heroine of a forgotten 19th century novel or a morbid affliction of the toes. Gorey loved absurdities. Laurel Elliott's whimsical jewelry of the cats are fun gifts for her.
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.
