Horse brasses were used to adorn the harness horses, primarily in the UK, many would identify the route, simply for decoration, royalty, different industries such as train or brewery and some, I am sure, were just made out of fondness for a likeness or animal. Some older brasses were worn on harness, others were just made primarily to commemorate a certain event. It is hard to date many of the harness brasses, yet you can get an idea from the patina as well as how well the brass is cast. You can sometimes tell from the darkness on the reverse, from the brass slapping against the leather of the harness, but some people clean their brasses often, so this is not always a tell tale sign. Stamped brasses are from the early 1900's and only up to the 1930's. Most brasses you come across were cast and often the getts (the holder for the casting) is left partly on the back of the brass. I find horse brasses lovely and intriguing. All of the brasses I offer for sale are from England.

The ceramic and porcelain brasses were primarily made for ornamental purposes. This ceramic brass is new and comes from England. The hanger is solid brass, the insert is a heavy ceramic bisque. The new ceramic brasses are as highly collectible as the vintage ones. Each is made by hand, from the caster of the solid brass hanger to the ceramic inlay craftsman. An old art, brought back, I savor the time we have to still acquire these. Some images may become available again and some you will only see once. They look great on the wall and make a very unique gift. These will only increase in value and are highly sought after by collectors.

This measures 3 1/4" in diameter.
