There is no motif more associated with luck than a horseshoe with them being as popular now as in Victorian times. Facing upward they bring luck to the wearer and facing downward, they send luck out into the universe.
This is a fantastic antique triple horseshoe, riding crop & horse head brooch pin in sterling silver with 9ct yellow gold detailing dating from the late Victorian period. In need of a little tlc, the pin is missing as well as the gemstone eye, but we believe these could be easy repairs  for a skilled person.
The silver has been tested as there are no silver marks. To the rear at the end of each horseshoe are small air holes, these are the products of a manufacture as the brooch is hollow.
Size 4.7 x 3.6 x 1.3 cm or 1.8 x 1.4 x 0.5 inches.
Weight 7.0 grams or 4.5 penny weight.
