EH Hallmark on a Horse Pin

Hi Paula,

I recently purchased a silver horse pin at a gallery in Scottsdale, Arizona. The pin was of a running Appaloosa horse. The jagged mane and tail are shiny while the body is textured. There are seven shiny dots on the horses rump signifying it being an appaloosa and a raised dot for the eye. It’s hard to make out the hallmark, but it looks like a cursive EH. Thanks for helping me identify the artist. Susan

Here is a picture of the horse. I had the pin made into a pendant. The hallmark is too small to photo, but it is located on the backside -upper mane. Thanks Paula!!!

Great idea to make that great little horse pin into a pendant.

The artist is Ervin Hoskie, Navajo. We’ve had several of his pins in our store in the past but not lately.
