NEWSLINK: Vintage jewellery designer fined £2,000 for selling illegal big cat claws
A vintage jewellery designer popular with Kate Moss has been fined £2,000 for selling illegal big cat claws in her shop at an upmarket London department store.
Annina Vogel was seen selling antique Victorian panther, leopard and lynx claws by a customer in December 2013 at her boutique in Liberty on London's busy Regent Street.
The shopper became concerned when she heard the assistant refer to 14 items as 'tiger claws' and reported the company to the council's senior trading standards officer.
