A Spanish gold and enamel horse pendant, circa 1600.

The saddled horse, that once had a figure of Cupid sitting on its saddle, is set with rubies on one side, on the other with emeralds and hung with pearls. There is a charming detail in its making: the raised leg is hinged so that when moved, the horse appears to be pawing the air.

Height 8.3cm, depth 4.2cm.
