    The first image is a KTF Philippe rhodium plated running horse. The next images are my running horse. I am wondering if this could be philippe prototype? The design is a little rougher, pave set rhinestone and invisible set baguettes. The mane is different. It's unmarked except that on the tail is scratched the numbers 1694151. Hmmm? It's not a patent. Although, maybe it was a tentative patent # that was never used, since that patent # is from 1928.

    Can anyone give me more information on this piece. Particularly it's differences from the KTF horse?

      I can sense everyone pondering this.
    2. Jewels Jewels, 8 years ago
      Lol gardinerth, I love your comment here :)
    3. gardinerth, 8 years ago
      Thanks, just wishful thinking. I suppose the truth probably is that no one has any information beyond what is already out there. I would just like to know what to call it if I do decide to sell it, and what it's worth.

      Ahh I understand, interesting post, wish I could help, will keep it in my list and love it from time to time to keep in cycling for you :)

      This is a really fascinating post esp. for those who love to solve a mystery...
    8. gardinerth, 8 years ago
      Here is a question to start with: when were the first pieces pave set? By whom?
    9. Jewels Jewels, 8 years ago
      That's a good question?
    10. Jewels Jewels, 8 years ago
      Oops, that's a good question! (So much different with a question mark, sorry)

      Lovely. Are these prize pins of some sort?
    12. gardinerth, 8 years ago
      No, just high end costume jewelry of the time.

      Thanks for the bump, Jewels. It still looks to me as if my pin is possibly a prototype of the later pin. They are from the same mold except that the mane and tail have minor changes

      Did you ever get any info on your brooch?
    14. gardinerth, 7 years ago
      Nope. I'll just hang onto it for a few years, Maybe I'll run across some more info in that time. Thanks for ashing.
    15. gardinerth, 7 years ago
      and asking
    16. antiquerose antiquerose, 7 years ago
      ...Interesting post, but have no clue!

      The only thing I can add is that the horse looks to be a standard-bred Harness Trotter Race Horse (not a Pacer ) if that helps any.....LOL
    17. gardinerth, 7 years ago
      It may help in the future if I find more info in the future, thanks.
