It seems that even the horses were well dressed in the Victorian era. They wore beautiful domed glass on brass decorative rosettes on their bridles. And then, one day, someone must have looked at these and said 'Hey wait a minute!...that would look better on my riding jacket!'. And so these rosettes were removed from the horses who didn't mind because they got carrots as payment.
This antique rosette features a racing jockey on his speedy steed.
The glass domed horse racing graphic is set in a brass frame with a perfectly aged patina. It measures 1 3/4 inches across by 3/4 inch high. The back has been fitted with a secure rollover clasp pin.
This circa 1890s piece is in excellent condition (that darkness around the edge is just shadow and not on the item). If you wear it to a horse race event and get looks from the horses, it's just admiration. But have a carrot in your pocket just in case.
