Outstanding vintage Art Deco/Retro Moderne horse form figural brooch in ebonized carved wood with inlaid silver detail. Circa 1945. Unsigned, most likely by Elzac Inc., which produced jewelry from materials such as ceramic, Lucite, fur, feathers, cloth, and wood during World War II when other materials were in short supply.
With an embedded pin back and with silver decoration, including beads around the collar and along the mane, and thin wires above and below the beads around the collar.
Very well designed, with an outstanding design and a very expressive face. A perfect addition to your horse collection.
2 1/4 inches long by 2 inches wide. Excellent condition. The white lines toward the lower neck are much more visible in the enlarged photos than in person, and do not detract at all from the look of this beautiful piece. Photos enlarged to show detail.
