Vintage Equestrian Saddle Horse Transfer Print Porcelain Brooch: This wonderful vintage brooch features a lovely saddle horse head transfer print on porcelain. The horse has a wide blaze and a full snaffle bit bridle. I love his alert ears and expression! The setting is a lovely openwork gold plated filigree design with old style roll over clasp. There is also a fold up bale to wear the piece as a pendant. The brooch is in wonderful condition, any white on print is reflection from my LED lights. The brooch measures 1 3/8 by 1 1/2" and is unsigned.
Vintage Russian Amber Ant Bug Brooch: Although this brooch is often referred to as a spider, he only has 6 legs so we will just have to consider him an ant. This bug is crafted from gold plated metal with a large teardrop Russian amber body and round head. There are markings above the clasp on the back, but I can't read them. I often see these pieces sold as 8k gold, but this is plated metal. A nice size at 1 3/4", he is in excellent condition. C-clasp closure holds securely. This fun critter will be a great conversation starter!
