horse furniture


Here is a selection of militaria from this category:

[ Show all ]
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!

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 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 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 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.

testimonials

Just to let you know that the bayonets arrived safely this morning and I am extremely happy! They are everything that I had hoped they would be, but better! I am extremely pleased that i purchased them from you. The 1867 Albini ... is an absolute beauty, the blade is immaculate. The other is in fact in far better condition that I had imagined as well. So all in all, I couldn't be happier! Many thanks Chris.

I very much look forward to doing business with you again in the near future.
