horse furniture


Here is a selection of militaria from this category:

[ Show all ]
militaria item Iron stirrup
- German
This is a good example of an early stirrup from the mid-16th century. It was found on the outskirts of Edinburgh some years ago and is, in all probability, of either German or perhaps Austrian origin. The motifs are largely of the shell variety, typical of this period on ironwork like sword hilts and other horse furniture.

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 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 Bronze stirrup
- British
This military stirrup (military because of its weight and the shell device, which helped protect the stirrup from being cut away by a sword blow) is the type found all over Europe at this period, but I'll give it the benefit of the doubt and call it British because it was found in England (in a barn).

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.

testimonials

Just a brief note to confirm that the sabre has been delivered today. All is as it should be. I have to say I’m impressed with the ‘custom’ packaging, obviously essential in your line of business. I have made a very quick inspection of the sword & it fully lives up to your accurate description, very pleased with the purchase.
