Horse Brass: George 111

$9.95

Our horsebrasses are individually made by a leading English manufacturer that has been making high quality brass items for over 85 years. They use only first-run English ingot brass; no recycled brass is used and very litte tin and zince are added due to the high amount of copper used in the mix before firing. Each piece is individually cast, then shot-blasted to remove any excess brass, hand filed to providee a smooth finish, then hand polished to bring our the beauty of quality brass. George 111 was King of Great Britain and King of Ireland from 1760 until the union of these two countries in 1801, after which he became King of the United Kingdom. He is infamously known as the King who lost the American colonies. Had he not refused to intervene on behalf of the colonists who were angry with Parliament, the American Revolution may have been avoided and we would still be part of the Commonwealth.
