Vintage Vogt Sterling Silver Filigree Western Show Horse Bit W Hooded Port *nr:
Up for sale is a used older Vogt sterling silver overlay western show horse bit. It is stamped VOGT on the inside of the left cheek. I was told by the original owner of the bit that it was made by Norm Vogt but I don't know how to verify that claim. It is a beautiful wester show horse bit.
The first thing that I want to mention is that the bit has some damage- two silver petals on the flower on the right cheek piece have come off. The iron or steel in the shape of the petals still remain. This is clearly shown in several of my photos.
The bit has engraved sterling overlay on the cheeks with a filigree pattern and a raised flower just below the mouthpiece. The cheeks measure about 7-1/2" from the top of the bridle ring to the slobber bar rings. The stainless steel mouthpiece is right at 5" wide. It has a copper roller with a copper port. The engraved sterling silver overlay slobber bar is very attractive with scalloped edges.
The bit is in good used condition showing normal wear, with the exception of the already mentioned two missing flower petals. Otherwise, the silver looks to be in good shape. The rein rings have some scratches and marks and they are not exactly the same shape. The hooded copper port has teeth marks and the grooves in the roller have some old horse mouth grunge in them that I didn't try to scrape out. This is a neat looking bit that would look great in the show ring or in your collection of western bits.
The bit display stand is not part of the sale- only the bit is being sold.
