ANTIQUE 2 PIECE CARVED PEARL HORSE SHOE & HORSE HEAD WATCH FOB 2 COLOR CHAIN. PLEASE VISIT MY NEW WEST COAST TRADING POST STORE! IN THE UPPER RIGHT HAND CORNER OF MY LISTINGS. FANCY 2 PIECE ANTIQUE CARVED PEARL. HORSE SHOE & HORSE HEAD WATCH FOB WITH 2 COLOR CHAIN.
This is a Fine Antique Gentleman's 3 dimensionally carved 2-piece Mother of Pearl watch Fob with the top piece sculptured in the shape of a Horseshoe with a curved shape overall and 7 small metal pins for the Horseshoe nails. The bottom piece hand carved in the shape of a Horse head wearing a gold colored bridle and bit with a green stone concho, and dangles from a bottom ring of the Horseshoe. Figural objects have always been "Top of the Line"; the most distinctive, unusual, scarce and expensive to create and own. This piece is depicting a Horse shoe and Horse Head suggests a racing horse theme and was intended for a Sporting Gentleman of means.
Many of these horseheads are carved on the front with a flat backside, but this piece is 3 dimensionally carved on both sides; a nice attention to detail. The 3 dimensional double sided carved Pearl Horsehead is about 1 1/2" wide x 1" tall x 3/8 thick. The carved Pearl Horseshoe is about 4 3/4 tall from the bottom to the top of the cross bar. The twist style link chain is 8 from the cross bar to the end loop that attaches to the top watch ring.The twist link chain is unusual, as it has alternating lengths of chain that changes color from silver to gold, to silver to gold. 8 ounces or 24 grams. The fob was designed to hang on the outside a vest pocket, so one could pull on the fob and remove a pocket watch, match safe or other accessory with the watch chain. The metal clamp with a spring loaded lever (springs works fine) would affix it to the pocket watch or other accoutrement. This piece has a nice, untouched aged patina overall. There are no chips or cracks to the Mother of Pearl pieces. The right side of the chain where it connects to the Horseshoe appears to have a small piece of a link attached inside the end connecting loop. This appears to be easily fixed by simply removing the partial link with needle nose pliers; but I have left the piece in as found condition. This is barely noticeable to the naked eye, and is not distracting overall (see image 11). This handsome eye-appealing piece would be perfect for any Pocket Watch, Sporting Gentleman, Western, Horseman, Horsewoman, Horse racing, Cowboy, Cowgirl, Old West, Pocket Watch or Watch fob collector; or use today as a conversation piece.
