Horse Brasses – Single Circusbrass – masted ship
Horse-brasses are highly collectible, decorative, and each has a story of its own incorporated in its design by the craftsman who created it. Old English inns, hotels, manor homes, and pubs take pride in their collections by hanging them individually or attaching them to a martingale which is hung on wooden beams or on brick fireplaces. The Circus brass is a larger cousin to the horse brass. Each of our designs (over 40 in stock) has been passed down through the ages and protects the bearer from danger, promise good luck, is part of a family crest, or shows the type of work for which the horse is being used. Our horse brasses are approximately 3″ in diameter and weigh about 3.50 ounces. Our circus brasses are approximately 4.75″ in diameter and weigh about 11 ounces.We will include a brief history of the horse-brass free with your purchase.
