Antique lucky horseshoe jabot pin.
A jabot pin is a type of Brooch, usually long and vertically shaped, consists of a single central pin with two decorative ornaments at either end. The lower ornament, which either clicks or screws into place, is detachable allowing the connecting pin to be slipped through the garment. When fastened, the pin is invisible so the two ornaments seem to float on the fabric. These pins were originally used to decorate or fasten a dangling ruffle known as a jabot, worn by men on the front of shirts and women on the front of dresses dating to the 17th century. But as an article of jewelry, it came into its own around the turn of the 20th century and flourished through the 1930s as a prime piece of Art Deco ornamentation. The pin style was worn on hats, lapels, shoulders, and handbags. They were made of precious metals and gemstones as well as costume jewelry.
This jabot pin is in a silver tone embellished with shimmery clear rhinestones on the horseshoes. One side unscrews so this can be pinned onto clothing. Horseshoes and arrows were a common theme when these were manufactured around the 1920s to 1930s. A beautiful vintage adornment for your hat, scarf, collar or even handbag.
