Art Deco Horses


I am so happy to stock this Art Deco horse pin today! Horse motif jewelry, along with all other types of figural jewelry (birds, insects, dogs, etc.) was hugely popular during the 1920s-1930s and is very collectible today. Brooches were the preferred medium for this type of jewelry, with all kinds of clever designs developed by the popular companies of the day. Here are a few more examples of Art Deco horse motif jewelry.
