Classyvintage darkoil sterling silvermarked browband style headstall. It is inexcellent used condition, showing signs of light use over the years and was well maintained. Thebuckles and conchosare eye popping between thehand engraving and patina; as you can see the silver really pops in low light. The buckles are marked Sterlingas shown, as are the tips and bridle rosettes. All of the silver is original and is more than likely Diablo pattern-the 1 3/4" bridle rosettes are probably one of my all time favorite patterns and is similar to one that Les Garcia used. Several silver bars have some surface scratches whichshouldn'tbe seen during use -I wasn't sure it was visible in the photos but did want to mention it. The leather is supple, pliable and was recently cleaned and condition so it would be ready to useuponreceipt. The leather isdoubled and stitched with the backs of the silver sandwiched in, signs of a top quality piece.
On the longestsetting the headstallmeasures 41" long and on the smallest setting is 36". The total length of the browband is 15".
