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!
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.
Pair of stirrups
This magnificent pair of Ottoman stirrups date from the end of the 17th or early 18th century. They are of gilded iron with a star of David motif on both sides, one amidst geometric designs and the other amidst floral ones. There would seem to be a signature on both sides of the top of the stirrups, but I am not able to decipher it.
