Vtg Filigree Sterling Silver Overlay 5 3/4 D-ring Show Snaffle Bit Fe Marked
Beautiful vintage silver snaffle with 5 3/4 mouthpiece, marked FE. Sterling overlaid onto stainless rings, all hand engraved. The filigree conchos were paintstakingly hand cut, shaped, filed and engraved. If you've never seen this process, it is an awe-inspiringly slow process and a real talent. Mouthpiece looks to be sweet iron, has a slight curve to it with copper inlays. This bit has only been lightly used - if you need a larger than standard mouthpiece, they are hard to find. See my other listings for more tack.
