Offered here is a darling little antique pin featuring Mother Goose’s own...”Three Blind Mice”! This 18 K Gold reminder of the musical rhyming tale from many a childhood is a wearable piece of art. Composed of three (3) individual three dimensional (3 D) tiny sculptures the detail in this lost wax casting is amazing. Three mice are line dancing in sync as they celebrate their escape from the old Farmer’s Wife...”see how they run”.
The pin weighs 3.5 grams of 18 K Yellow Gold; the brooch measures 1 1/8” across and the little mice are ½” tall. Each mouse holds a walking stick (cane) at the ready to tap out a beat or to run for their lives.
The family estate that this brooch came from told me that it was made, in England during the late 19th Century, circa the 1890’s, as part of a small group of brooches featuring illustrations of characters from some of the beloved Mother Goose Rhymes. Sadly, the other pieces had vanished over time.
