Vtg Sterling Silver Ferrule Braided Kangaroo Romal/Romel Parade/Show Reins
Beautiful vintage blackkangaroo leather romel reins, withsterling silver engravedferrules. This is a pair of reins that were custom ordered from Vogt back in the 1970's even though they are not maker marked. The quality of the silver is evident by the patina that you see currently which is quite desireable to collectors-bylightly going over them with a cloth itwill allow the ferrules to really pop in the arena. They are invery good usedcondition, showing light show 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. Theyweigh 18 ounces and are show legal in all associations, are supple andwill drape/hang properly during use due to being kept conditioned over the years and are withoutmemory orstiffness. The nice thing about kangaroo also is that it offers a wonderful feel in the hand and the more you use it the better they get. Each rein measures 51" long, the romel section including popper is 54".
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.
