American Heritage Publishing Company commissioned Gorham Silversmiths in 1972 to create a line of sterling silver ornaments based on historical themes and items to be issued annually. Trotting steadily along, this handsome horse pulling a sulky and the determined rider will be a race winner on your Christmas Tree. Originally called Sulky Rider, this wonderful ornament is in excellent condition with no wear or issues of any type that I can find. Horse and Sulky is appropriately hallmarked and comes with original tarnish resistant pouch and Gorham box.
Ornament is approximately 4 1/2 inches long and 2 1/4 inches tall at the top point. This is an especially hard one to find because of the high price of silver in the 80's.
