When the road is a ribbon of moonlight over the purple moor, A highwayman comes riding— Riding—riding— A highwayman comes riding, up to the old inn-door. (From The Highwayman by Alfred Noyes)
So many great works of literature and art center around the magnificent sport of horse-riding. This fabulous Riding Crop Brooch from 1890 joins the collection of objets d’art which celebrate our connection with horses and speed. The shining silver crop is embellished with fabulous realistic detail in black niello, adding interest and texture. A wonderfully wearable size, this lovely piece measures 12.3 x 59 mm, with a depth of 6.2 mm, and weighs 2.4 grams. It is marked with “800” on the crop handle.
This lovely Silver Riding Crop Brooch would make a delightful gift for anyone who loves dressage, riding, showing, or anything equestrian!
