Charming Asch Grossbart Multistone Gold Leaping Cat Pin
Asch Grossbart was known for fine inlay work, where stones of opposing colors are carefully placed into recessions meticulously carved into the base stone. This perky little feline is crafted in 14 karat yellow gold, with black enamel ears and coral eyes, anchored at the neck by a diamond set bow. His body is white mother of pearl, inset with spots of rich green malachite, bright lapis, and vibrant orange coral; the contrast is particularly lovely since the bright stones are set into the softly lustrous pearl. He measures 1 1/4" from his tip to his tail. Signed A/G, 14K.
