horse furniture

Here is a selection of militaria from this category:

[ Show all ]
militaria item Pair of close-plate iron spurs
- British
These are lightweight officer's spurs in close-plated iron. Close plate was a method of fusing thin silver sheet to an iron base. In the 19th century, the military officer's spur tended to get heavier; the dress spur proper, often of cast brass and with a short iron spiggot at the heel, came into use with the new soft leather dress boots.

militaria item Iron rowel spur
- German
Rowel spurs first appeared in the 14th century. Originally the shanks were very long (in the Gothic period), getting progressively shorter as time went by. This classic design was worn well into the 17th century throughout northern Europe, and would have been standard fare in the Thirty Years War and the English Civil War.

militaria item Hinged iron rowel spur
- European
This somewhat damaged piece is a rare survivor of a strange design which resurfaces in the 18th and 19th centuries in silver, in England at any rate. The rowel spur first appeared in the 14th century and normally had fixed arms, as opposed to hinged ones.

militaria item Bridle boss
- Unknown
This could be a French, Dutch or even a US Union bridle boss and one would have been riveted on each side of the bridle. It is a die-struck brass badge (2.7cm top to bottom) and its condition is clean with remarkably little wear.

militaria item Baluchistan Police horse furniture
- British Empire
This is off a bridle or possibly some other element of horse furniture. Baluchistan Police were from the southern frontier with Afghanistan and may well have been a paramilitary organisation rather than a local police unit at that time, as I rather doubt that local police would have had such exotic horse furniture!
