Price: $500.00
Antique Victorian signed 9ct gold brooch / pin with a horse and jockey in a horse race. Made circa 1860-1890''s, in England. Measures a tad over 1 1/4 inches long. WOnderfully modelled figural group of a horse at full gallop with a jockey bent over his back. Mane and tail fly backwards. Note detail to horse from the hooves to the eyes, bridle and reigns. The jockey is even more exciting with his boots and cap, perched on the saddle. Great detail and very finely created by a true master goldsmith. The back has it''s original hinged C-clasp. A number of hallmarks appear on the back: Regsitered mark, which indicates that it was probably made in Britain. An incised number:15839. 9Ct and the maker, A&W. Condition is very good. Magnifying glass reveals that there is a minute hole in the sleeve of the jockey''s arm which might be original to the piece (there are also two definately intentional holes at the back - see ''photos), but I could not see this with my ''naked eyes'' and mention it only for the sake of accuracy.
