Horse Brass Horsehead In Horsehoe Heraldic Crest Souvenir 1930s Pub Brass
This souvenir horse brass measures 3.5 inches high by 3 inches across and depicts a heraldic horse head in a horseshoe which is a reproduction of an older horse brass with someone's crest which I can't identify.
This is a horse brass made for the tourist trade in the 1930-1940s and is a reproduction of an older brass. Horse brasses originated during the 17th century to decorate and identify draft horses.
Horse brasses are a popular collectible today. In England they decorate the beams of pubs and hang by the fireplace in homes, and I have seen them used as Christmas tree ornaments by my horse loving friends!
