This bridle is made of dark brown leather which has been rolled to form fine straps.
It has a leather tassel on the throatlash.
Many of the buckles are covered in finely stitched leather - a technique used to prevent rusting before the advent of stainless steel.
Some of the leather on the buckles is worn.
The steel bit is very fine - much thinner and lighter than later examples.
It has curved cheeks with pierced lozenges and floral decoration on the cheeks.
It has a low port. The bit has an old dark patina and I cannot find any maker's marks.
