Lalique cat-face brooch in their traditional style of glass-making. The cat's face changes luminosity according to the angle of light. The highly polished metal back with brooch pin and tubular safety catch is stamped LALIQUE and it comes in its original fitted case, covered in 'lizard-skin' pattern paper, and silver-stamped LALIQUE PARIS on the cover. Diameter 1 7/8 inches: 46 mm. It is quite heavy, so could not be worn on a light summer dress. The brooch is difficult to date, but my guess is the 1980s. Lalique change their brooch designs regularly, produce them for a limited period, and then do not repeat them, so they become increasingly collectable.Tthis is a striking example, in as new condition.
