Lucky you with this elegant horseshoe. Dogwood flowers are associated with spring but with Western fashion trending now, this one is an early bloomer. Wear the shoe up to catch luck for yourself, or down to spill luck onto others.
Midcentury gold plated metal, “cold” enamel and faux pearl, on pin with safety clasp. A rare design by Robert Originals/Fashioncraft (1942-79). Approximate measurements: 1.75" across, 2" tall. Small hairline imperfection to finish by flower and two tiny scuffs to pearl coating (see last photo).
The Flowering Dogwood tree (Cornus florida) blossoms in white and pink varieties. It's native to most of North America from Ontario to Mexico and all the way west to Kansas. It's not only beautiful, but attracts birds and butterflies. It's deer tolerant too. Go get one to match your new brooch!
