Stunning medals such as these were given as awards at horse shows in the early 1900's. Gilded bronze, silver-plated bronze and solid bronze medals given as first, second and third place were treasured keepsakes far outliving the rosettes awarded today. These 2" medals features a lovely Belgian warmblood horse in profile. Examples such as this have become increasingly rare. Each medal is bezel wrapped in sterling silver and suspended from a necklace of hand-knotted freshwater pearls that are 19" in length. Loop and pearl closure.
