I just love this old celluloid horse and carriage/buggy brooch with the very old "C" clasp! This great pin is two toned, shades of peachy pink and salmon colored. Measuring nearly 3 1/4" long and 2 3/4" North to South, this brooch has the seen and unseen. With the horse high-stepping in the front, the buggy is in motion. Why is he high stepping??? I believe what you don't see is the person driving the carriage, but you see he has the reins and whip in hand.
There is such detail to this piece, with the wagon wheels, canopy and buggy trim, the horse's mane, etc, and I just love pieces that have that look of movement even when they're not really going anywhere. It's not mechanical, but looks as if at any moment you could jump aboard for a ride.
The back has a Patent number marked. It's an oldie and goodie, and I hope you'll love it like I do:) I have another Horse celluloid pin that I bought with this one, so you may want to check back.
