Antique Us Cavalry Horse Bit Civil War 1859 Iron Metal Brass Vtg Bridle W/ Chain:
This is an ANTIQUE CIVIL WAR ERA US CAVALRY HORSE BIT OR BRIDLE. Item is metal (I assume forged or cast iron) with brass US Cavalry emblems on the sides. Item has the chain. From my research, this looks like an 1859 model item, which means it was most likely used during the US Civil War. I did not see another example that had its chain, which appears to be totally original. Antique US Cavalry Horse Bit is used antique condition, showing marks from age and use. The iron body of the bit is evenly corroded, with a wonderful antique patina. The brass metal US Cavalry buttons on the sides are in fantastic condition for their age. I have not polished the metal. There is a little bit of space between one of the brass buttons and the iron, and a little bit of white corrosion. But this button, like the other, is securely fastened to the iron structure. Beautiful item with lots of character and history. Item appears totally original. I have never seen one with the chain intact. This is one item that is going to be hard to part with! Horse bit measures about 9 inches in length, 6 inches in width, and sits about 2.75 inches off the table. I did not see a JNO mark on the chain arms of this bit. It may be there under the aged patina, but I am not sure. Item is VERY SECURELY PACKED for a safe ship to any worldwide location.These are not stock photos.
