Beaded wild horses gallop with abandon across a bluegreen backdrop. A unique piece for your Western wardrobe.
Vintage plastic beads on brass plated metal band. Unmarked. Approximate measurements: 1.5" across at opening, 2.5" at widest, 2" tall. No beads missing. One bead is slightly loose but securely attached (visible in first photo). Beads do not lay perfectly flat in some places and the metal shows minor bends - both perhaps the result of being adapted to more than one wrist over its lifetime. Minor scratches to plating at edges.
The only wild horse species (Equus ferus) alive today is Przewalski's Horse, which once roamed Russia, Kazakhstan, Mongolia, and China. The population crashed in the late 18th Century, but late 20th Century conservation biologists came to the rescue and reintroduced them in a few Mongolian protected areas. About 3-400 Przewalski's Horses remain today.
