Vintage Celluloid White Pony Horse Brooch

This is an amusing vintage celluloid white pony horse brooch with dangling legs. The body and dangling legs are made from white celluloid. A tail of rope is tied on his rump. the horse has upright ears and a pronounced round eye. He is painted to have a smiling grin. His hooves are black. the back has a simple pin back with a bent over C hook clasp.

The brooch measures 1.75" x 2.125".

Condition is overall good. There is some wear to the painted features. There is a slightly darker area on his back and neck but that seems to be part of the plastic.

I estimate that this cute horse dates from circa 1930s. He reminds me of Gumby's horse friend Pokey from the 1950s, but I feel this one predates Pokey. This is the brooch to wear when you are 'feeling your oats' and want to have some fun. Who wouldn't smile after seeing this quirky pony.
