This is a beautiful pair of turquoise chip horses on stands. Each horse is about 24" tall x 27" long and about 9" wide with the saddles. The wood base is about 17" long x 9.25" and nearly 3" tall. They are decorated with stone cabochons and enameled flower petals and metal saddle with enameling and filigree. I believe the saddles and bridles were originally gilded and the saddles sides may be silver but not tested. Teardrop metal enamel tassels every few inches (one missing) and I replaced 3 of the cabochons that were missing. The hooves are goldstone and the horses are not attached to their bases, they just sit on top.
These are most likely mid twentieth century pieces and are mirror images with one head leaning left and the other leaning right. They are in wonderful vintage condition with some small losses and repairs and some yellowing areas which I have tried to show in one photograph. They display beautifully and are quite uncommon. Oh and the eyes look like tiger eye stones. Just gorgeous!
Because of their size they will be professionally packed shipped and insured.
