Superb Large Vintage Circus Horse Pin by Bijoux Cascio
In mint condition from old store stock, never worn, this fabulous vintage Bijoux Cascio brooch is a whopper, measuring just under 3 x 2 inches. The size would be more precise in centimeters, given that it comes from Europe. The company was established in Italy during 1948 and lasted about 40 years, accessorizing famous designer lines including Pucci and Capucci.

This jewel most likely dates from the 1960s or 1970s, when people began collecting old carousel horses and fancy equine motifs were all the rage. As you see, shimmering black and green enamelwork sets a most dramatic mood here, accentuated by exceptionally brilliant gold plating and sparkling Swarovski crystals of tourmaline pink, topaz blue and peridot green, plus a clear diamante eye. With this mix of colors, it will go beautifully with almost anything. Highly sculptural, the piece rises more than half an inch above the back. There's an abundance of textural interest, too, and obviously its like-new condition makes this beauty highly giftable. The Bijoux Cascio mark appears on its richly gilded reverse, in an oval cartouche.

There's no charge for insured U.S. shipping and gift-wrap is also free whenever desired. Please e-mail erinharris@comcast.net to confirm availability, order or request more photos. Thanks for looking!
