Title Early medieval jointed horse bit
Nationality European
Period c 1100-1200
Price £70.00

This form of bit would have been worn by military and civil alike throughout the period of the Crusades. In a modified form, this snaffle bit is still in use today. It is of iron lapweld construction, the central elements being hollow.

It measures 25.5cm across and, despite some heavy pitting overall, is in surprisingly good shape for its age. The rust has been cleaned and stabilised to a considerable degree, but would improve with a little TLC!
