Eye-catching Horse head in a crimson background, this brass bridle rosette dates between 1875 and 1885. These were traditional decorations on bridles for driving horses, and they also served as a functional way to hold the headstall together. These became quite vogue during the Victorian era in the 1880s and are quite scarce today.
Repurposed into a striking necklace using pleated and smooth leather cord with a lobster claw clasp, a wonderful collectible piece you will treasure for years to come. 20" leather cord, rosette measures 2" round.
