horse furniture


Here is a selection of militaria from this category:

[ Show all ]
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 Iron bridon, snaffle or jointed bit
- European
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.

militaria item Postilion's spur?
- European
This is probably a north European item and the ironwork would indicate that it was fixed to the horseman's boot permanently (the two small projections at the top would appear to be iron staples/nails that would have been fixed into the heel of the boot). It probably had a small 1cm-diameter spike rowel, now largely disappeared.

militaria item Early medieval jointed horse bit
- European
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.

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!

testimonials

I am wholly delighted with the shako plate. [It] is a wee cracker. It is a real pleasure to have something combining both condition and quality in equal parts, and I simply could not be more pleased.
