Title Iron bridon, snaffle or jointed bit
Nationality European
Period c 700-900
Price £90.00

This is from the Charlemagne era. According to A. Demmin (the author of an established book on arms and armour, published 1894), there is a similar example in the Copenhagen Museum. It measures nearly 19cm across.

Obviously a ground find, it is nonetheless in remarkably good shape. It has been cleaned and stabilised to a competent extent, with only minor surface rust extant on a very small scale.

The knot has arrived safely and it looks great thank you.

Yes, arrived safe and sound, very nice, and very interesting. Have a couple of friends in the States slavering over the pictures, one of them loves searching old lists, etc. If I can tie it down more definitely will let you know.
