This vintage Chinese figural horse head pendant reminds us of Mr. Ed, The Talking Horse. He looks like he's in mid-sentence or maybe it's just a 'neigh'.
Made of a cinnabar composite with floral etching, the horse is accented with cloisonné enamel. The eyes, mouth and base are all detailed with enameling. This cinnabar enamel work is over a metal form so the ears are silver-tone. The bottom is gold-tone / brass.
The horse pendant measures 2 inches across by 1 3/4 inches high. It can stand on its own as a figurine. You can wear it from a chain as there's a loop coming out of his mane. Excellent vintage condition. Circa 1970s.
