Rare Civil War U.S. Artillery Horse Headstall and Bit with Rosettes

Rare Civil War U.S. Artillery Horse Headstall and Bit with Rosettes: This headstall was designed for use on the horses used to pull the limber and caisson, during the Civil War. Although artillery driver and officer headstalls are encountered with some regularity, this is the first, original Civil War artillery, work horse or team horse headstall, we have come across. The leather and various associated elements of the headstall are in fine condition, and, most importantly, the original, artillery bulls eye style, lead-backed rosettes are still in place. This is a rare piece of original Civil War artillery horse tack. SOLD
