Pansy’s Saddlebred Trophy Chandelier

Pansy's Saddlebred Trophy Chandelier

The Saddlebred horses bred and trained at Spindletop Hall were award-winning. Rather than letting her trophies grow dusty on a shelf or stored away in the attic, Pansy Yount had them repurposed. The chandeliers that hung in her daughter Mildred’s sitting room and bedroom were made from large sterling silver trophies won by Pansy’s horses. They were damaged in a fire that gutted Mildred’s suite in the 1970s, but were carefully refurbished.
