Horse Bit

English, 16th c.

Steel. An exceptional medieval horse bit. Made for a large horse -- possibly a war horse: imagine one of Henry VIII's knights charging into the French! The surface is wonderfully aged and pitted. Good excavated condition with forgivable loss. No repairs or restoration.

10" wide, 5" high.
