Simply purr-fection! This Baltic Amber Sassy Cat Pin is a charming coquette with a sterling silver silhouette and almond-shaped amber eyes. Her only adornment?

Museum Provenance

Since the Bronze Age, the world’s largest deposit of 35- to 40-million-year-old amber has been harvested from the Baltic Sea along Poland and Lithuania’s “Amber Coast.” Gdansk, Poland—situated on the Vistula where it meets the Baltic Sea—has been a renowned center of fine amber craftsmanship since the 10th century CE. Today, Gdansk amber artisans and jewelers with their centuries of accumulated knowledge and skill produce some of the world’s finest amber jewelry. Our sophisticated Sassy Cat Pin is evocative of exquisite figurative amber jewelry in our National Museum of Natural History’s Janet Annenberg Hooker Hall of Geology, Gems and Minerals.

Every Smithsonian purchase will arrive with a museum provenance card explaining how it is adapted from or inspired by an object or objects in our collection.
