Vtg Sterling Silver Overlay Poco Ferruled Bridle/Show Headstall Champion Turf NR
Beautifulvintage poco style ferruled browband headstall from the 1960-70's indarker medium oil leather with eye popping silver. The crown piece is stamped Champion Turf, and the bridle rosettes are marked as shown Fleming Silver Overlaid Mexico(sterling overlay),withthe buckles being marked Silver Overlaid. There are 14 engraved sterling ferrules done in the chevron pattern, and they are thick, heavier walled ferrules than what you might normally find.All silver is original, the lovely browband piece is 5 1/2" long and beautifully hand engraved.
Lightly used, the leather is supple and pliable, was doubled and stitched and is clean; the silver was polished fairly recently however the browband silver and engraved ferrules do have some black patina remaining here and there, to be expected with silver of this quality. This headstall overall shows very little signs of use or even wear; Idowant to note thatthere is a spot on the backside of the browband beneath the rosettes that is rubbed, but it shouldn't affect use in my opinion since the leather has been kept conditioned over the years. Thisheadstall is going to make a fantastic piece to add to your show equipment or tack collection - it ranks right up there as one of my favorite styles ever produced, and it will garner tons of compliments by whomever sees it.
On the longestsetting the headstallmeasures 42" long and on the smallest setting is 36" based on the holes currently punched.The browband has a total length of 15".
