Description

With a lovely Western twist in a very Victorian era, this lovely silver concho rosette once adorned the bridle of a well-appointed carriage horse. This is an excellent example of the concho rosettes from this era, with brands and horses being the most popular by far.

Lovingly repurposed into a stunning piece of modern jewelry this antique rosette is sure to become your most interesting statement piece. Beautiful etched horse head, chestnut-colored vintage belt leather cuff in oak and black with brass snaps.

Rosette is circa 1880s, cuff is circa 1970s. Cuff measures 8 ½ inches long x 1 ½ inches wide, adjustable 7 – 7 ¾ inches with the rosette measuring 1 ¾ inches around. This Rosette is featured in the book Bridle Rosettes, Two centuries of Equine Adornment by E. Helene Sage.

How this defines the urban equestrian: Holding onto old traditions and icons of past lifestyles revolving around the horse assure that the long history of the horse and human will be remembered and preserved well into the future.
