Interesting find - whats it made from??
« on: August 05, 2017, 09:24 »
My father dug this in an old oval and it was pretty deep down. It had not much more than a wash in water and a light brush.  Why is it in such good nick, the horses head looks silver and the way it is made looks very old with the rear clasp in great condition.  Pennies come out pretty badly corroded in this soil too.  No markings that I can see.

Size? Looks like it might have been attached to leather?

May be a prize for an equestrian event back in the day.
I'd have a guess and say it may be brass under the patina🤔

Cool relic..only other use that I can think of (apart from being a decorative piece)  would be a money clip...unlikely though.
