Horse Brass: Buckfast Abbey

Horse Brass: Buckfast Abbey


This abbey was built by King Canute in 1018 in Buckfast, Devon, on the edge of Dartmoor. Like so many early cathedrals and abbeys it fell into ruin after the Dissolution. In 1882 it was refurbished by a small group of French Benedictine monks. All the labor of reconstruction (completed in 1938) was provided by the monks who paid for all the materials with donations they collected. Each of our horse brasses is handmade by a leading British foundry using only a first-run ingot brass mix rich in copper for depth of colour and durability. Each is then hand filed to remove any excess brass then hand polished to enhance the natural beauty of quality brass. Approximate measurement: 3.75″ diameter.
