This vintage book contains a detailed guide to horse-brasses, first published in 1928. Horse brasses are decorative brass plaques used to adorn horses harnesses, most commonly shire and parade horses. From the mid-19th century they became incredibly popular, but experienced a significant decline in popularity along with that of the draft horse. Today, they exist predominantly as collectors items. “All About Horse Brasses” looks at the history of these beautiful equestrian adornment, as well as notable examples, producers, and more. This book is highly recommended for collectors and antiques dealers. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new introduction on horse brasses.
