A handsome antique horse and jockey brooch from the Edwardian era, c1910! Made of 18ct yellow gold, this beautifully detailed novelty brooch depicts the shape of a jockey atop of a leaping horse. The body of the horse is encrusted with dazzling rose-cut diamonds in a pavé setting, and a single dark blue sapphire rests in the horse's eye. There are forty-six diamonds ranging in size from 1.00mm- 2.20mm diameter, estimated total weight is 0.70cts. Two small diamonds are missing - one to the tail and one to the front foot. The jockey is decorated with glossy enamel - a navy and gold polka dot top and white bottoms representing his uniform. There is some white enamel loss. On the back is an old secure pin which appears to be a replacement. There is also a safety chain and pin attached which could easily be removed if you desire. The tail to the horse has an unobtrusive lead solder repair- seen under magnification. 

Selling as is - see Condition under 'Item Details'

There is no stamps to the piece however it has been tested as 18ct yellow gold with the pin testing a slightly lower carat gold. The brooch will be presented in the box pictured.

A wonderful and dazzling little antique brooch. Perfect for the avid antique novelty collector, or for any horse racing fanatic!

Selling as is. Two small diamonds are missing - one to the tail and one to the front foot. The tail to the horse has an unobtrusive lead solder repair- seen under magnification. The gold setting placed at the back foot has slight damage. There is white enamel loss. The pin replacement has remnants of lead solder partially surrounding pin base, again seen under magnification. Normal surface wear consistent with the 100+ year age. Whilst worth a mention, the age-related flaws do not detract from the overall look and charm of the piece. A gorgeous miniature work of art in itself!
