More on Sculptor Virginia Orison: Horse Show Awards

Horse medallions are popular among many model horse collectors these days.  I was reminded of that, when I saw this 4 August 1963 article in the Salt Lake City, Utah Tribune newspaper on Idaho equine artist Virginia Orison. 

It seems that, in addition to her model horse figurines, she also designed horse show awards -- "horse heads used as center highlights on ribbon rosettes."

Something else to look out for, as collectors visit estate sales and antique malls?

Here are two other blog posts I've done on Virginia Orison's work:
