Antique, French, Figural Pocket Knife of Cat


This antique brass, figural pocket knife is from France and circa late 1800s. I purchased a lot of these from a French antiques dealer and believe they're new, old stock. The knife features a bow-tied cat on both the front and back.

The blade measures 1 ⅜". When closed, the cat measures 2 ⅛", not including the bale. At its widest, the cat is approximately ⅞", not including the protruding blade when the knife is folded.

There is a bale at the top of the cat's head so this knife can be worn as a pendant. Wear commensurate with age.

Thank you for looking.

    I love this little pocket knife so much! It’s adorable, even cuter in person. Customer service was so sweet with a card included.
