Horse brasses originated during the 17th century to decorate and identify draft horses and serve as charms. Horse brasses are a popular collectible today.
In England they decorate the beams of pubs and hang by the fireplace in homes, and my horse loving friends have been known to decorate their Christmas trees with them! A great example of Victoriana, Edwardiana or a conversation starter as well as fun.
