A pair of cast iron lawn jockey's, American, early

Lot 3: A pair of cast iron lawn jockey's, American, early

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: A pair of cast iron lawn jockey's, American, early 20th century, 119cm.; 47ins high. Lawn jockeys were popular in the United States where they were placed in yards to either tether horses, as in these examples which have tethering rings, or holding lanterns. They are usually of two piece construction which is typical of the casting technique of American foundries who diversified into making cast iron garden figures and animals following cannon and armament production during the American Civil War. They were often painted with the owners racing colours and the balcony of the 21 Club in New York City is adorned with 33 lawn jockeys. The '21' was home to the affluent 'horsey' set as far back as the early 1930s. To impart their personal stamp on the speakeasy-turned-restaurant, many breeders began donating jockeys as symbols of their private horse farms. Today, many of the brightly painted figures represent the country's most prominent stables.
