The heads of three speeding race horses grace this old bridle rosette which was made as jewelry -- a brooch or large pin. This is an old die-cut artwork, mounted under a half-inch tall glass dome in a brass backing. With their ears pinned back and nostrils flaring, it's clear the horses are giving it their all.
Size is 1-5/8 inches across.
Condition is lovely - the transfer is in good condition with strong colors. The horse artwork is just very slightly blurry. The glass is crystal clear with no chips, cracks or scuffing. The brass backplate is in excellent condition with no cracks or splits. There are a few places where the brass has discolored. There is some slight residue from an old price tag - we have NOT tried to remove it as we do not clean our vintage metal items. Also, if you tilt this in bright light, there are tiny flecks of silver showing like glitter in the transfer, but you MUST tilt it, they are not visible head on.
The pin is firmly soldered to the back. It has an old safety catch and is in fine working condition.
This would be an attention getter worn on a stock type tie or high collar, or it could grace a scarf.
Very nice for any horse or pony loving lady or girl.
