Description

Duranoid was a process of shellacking that was very popular at the end of the 19th century as it rendered the plastic relatively resistant to abrasion & impact – much more than hard rubber. This process attributes to the survival of these rosettes; Duranoid was applied to 78rpm records and was first commercially produced in 1897 by the Duranoid Co of Newark, NJ. for the masses.

Vintage tooled deep Havana belt leather with brass snaps, black Duranoid Horseshoe with bit & crop design in center and buckled strap rim detail. Rosette is circa 1880s, cuff is circa 1970s.

Cuff measures 8 inches long, adjustable 6 ½ - 7 ½ inches, 1 ½ inches wide and rosette is 1 ¾ inches round. This Rosette is featured in the book Bridle Rosettes, Two centuries of Equine Adornment by E. Helene Sage.

How this defines the urban equestrian: Celebrating the ways in which the horse influenced fashion and society over a century ago not only connects us to the past but adds to the relevancy of the equestrian lifestyle today.
