Description

Starting in the 1880s and continuing on through the early 1900s, buttons were considered very vogue. This was a very opulent era which can be seen in the incredible workmanship and considerable detail that went into the crafting of these fashion-forward buttons.

This stunning button is cast in brass with exquisite detail depicting a galloping horse and jockey on an opulent shell back . Excellent condition, this lovely button has become a fabulous on-trend pendant that can be worn as a necklace or triple-wrapped around the wrist for a very artisan and on-trend bracelet.

18 inch leather cord with toggle clasp and brass hardware, button measures ¾ inches wide/long.

How this depicts the urban equestrian: Thoroughbred racing was a favorite pastime of the masses toward the end of the Victorian era, and continues on to enamored audiences worldwide today. The thoroughbred and racing lifestyle depicts wealth, prosperity and affluence in many cultures.
