This is a rare and highly collectible Lalique Cat (Chat) crystal pin brooch brand new in box! It was created by Marie-Claude Lalique in 1990. The crystal color is satin clear on silver-plated frame.
The pin measures 1-7/8 inches (4.8 cm) wide in diameter with a secure insert clasp. The name "LALIQUE" is stamped on the back of the pin. It is brand new condition with no issue and the back side is actually shiny and photo shows dust only. The rim has very minimal tarnish spots but hardly noticeable.
I believe it is rhodium plated sterling silver mounting, not 100% sure on this. It come with a Lalique fitted box as shown. Here's the information and description of the Lalique "BROOCH CHAT" collection.
