A small, but cute, cat brooch. For once, it's actually dated 1971, Italy 18k - did you know what Italy makes more jewellery than all the rest of Europe put together? This is because Italian jewellery is mostly interesting in design, and very well made. The head of the cat is in red coral, and there are two tiny ruby eyes. Across it is 3/4 inch: 2 cms - and does n't weigh much!
