    Was at an estate sale and found this sitting in the costume jewelry bin. I knew it was a hit when I saw it but wow... it is incredible!!!! Yes, the nose does have some enamel loss but it is just an incredibly crafted piece! Absolutely thrilled to have found this, now I just need to find a way to wear it! Diamonds, an amethyst, and amazing enamel work!

    Also, here is another that sold and Langs https://www.langantiques.com/enamel-and-diamond-tiger-s-head-pin.html

    I do love a nice piece of 14k in the junk bin! And that is a NICE piece; it's a kittycat. I think the bail was added later; it was intended as a brooch. THe bail is soldered over the initials.

    I can't tell if it's a ferocious kitty or a smiling tiger, but I LOVE it either way. Congrats on a great find!

    Sigh-time to get up early & hit some Estate Sales.
    PS-I'd be mighty tempted to keep this one as a souvenir, almost too memorable to sell,but hey- we all gotta make a living.
