    Cats are much harder to find as they were not cherished as much as dogs.

    You will find BIG cats, as in the 1st photo. I have seen a wonderful lion at an antique show but the owner wanted $3500 for it!

    The top brooch in photo 1 is quite interesting. It is a regimental brooch consisting of 2 tiger claws with 14K gold ends, centered above is an elephant with a howdah in sterling and yellow gold on a blue enamel “saddle-pad” background. Between the claws is a fine reverse carved rock crystal intaglio crystal painting of a tiger. Above the elephant is a white enamel ribbon inscribed with three major Indian battles: Amboor, Assaye, Ava

    Inscribed on the back panel of 14K gold: From WC to SC In remembrance of the many happy years passed in the old 10th Reg't M.N.I 2nd Feb 1869 [(MNI=Madras Native Infantry)]. The elephant is the Honorary badge awarded to the MNI after the battle of Assaye.

    The leopard is mounted in 18k, then later framed in a gold-filled mounting with enamel flowers.

    Photo 2 has two tabbies:
    - red tabby set in gold with a diamond and ruby surround
    - brown tabby in hammered gold with diamond edge

    Photo 3 are stickpins
    - brown tabby with diamond surround
    - rare Georgian stickpin of a cat carved on agate
    - a hissing tabby with arched back

    And finally, a wonderful reverse carved intaglio of a bumblebee set in a marvelous granulated gold frame.

      Boo hoo hoo... the bumble bee is on my pinterest essex crystal board, I would so much add it to my bzz bzz creatures!
      And ... the leopard, aaargh, I'm dying of love!
      All are top of the top, the georgian agate one is stunning, and the MNI badge has a whole story behind.
