Custom Vtg Sterling Silver Ball Ferruled Braided Kangaroo Romal/Romel Show Reins
Beautiful vintagedark oil(brown)kangaroo leather romel reins, withsterling silver engravedball ferrules. They were custom reins when purchased new and top quality as the beautifully floral tooled popper indicates.They are invery good/lightly usedcondition due to seeing occasionalshow ring use.The leatherhas been recentlygone over to clean and condition them so they would be ready for you to use when you receive them, you may wish to further detail the ferrules however they do pop in low light as you can see in the photos. There are some tiny scrapes at the end of the romel and on the popper which I thinkmay be hard to see in the closeups, asyou need to really scrutinize the reins to even see itin person.
The reinsweigh21 ounces and are show legal in all associations. Supple, soft andwill drape nicely/hang properly during use due to being kept conditioned over the years and do not have memory orstiffnessand offer a wonderful feel in the hand. Each rein measures 51" long, the romel section including popper is 50".
I apologize in advance for the dark photos taken indoors as they do not do the reinsjustice. Quality reins like this hand braidedwith the old-high quality silver are getting harder to find as time goes on; to have made today a rein of this quality would be in the $800 range.
