Fabulously detailed antique horse leg brooch of gold-washed sterling decorated with "paste" amethyst and diamonds.

This unique, sterling and now faintly gold washed silver stock pin or brooch is made in the shape of a horse's foreleg. The beautiful and accurately detailed foreleg is decorated with "paste" glass diamonds and a large "paste" amethyst. While the horse leg is a classic Victorian motif, the stylized, jeweled end shows the early influence of Art Deco.

This brooch looks good when worn horizontally on a stock or scarf. It is equally attractive when worn perpendicular on a scarf or lapel. It would be particularly beautiful on a dressage stock. The brooch is 2" long.

This pin secures w an early style rolling C clasp and simple hinged pin, which, combined with the style of the piece, date it to around 1900-1930. The pin is 2" long from hoof to amethyst & is marked "Sterling", so this is probably an American piece.

This strikingly beautiful item is truly a rare find.
