Bridle Rosette Brooches
Bridle rosettes (sometimes called halter rosettes) are glass domes with pictures. They came in pairs, and were used, as you might expect, to decorate a horse’s bridle or halter. Today, lovers of vintage and estate horse jewelry enjoy these rosettes as brooches. They’re substantial pieces that look great on the lapel of a blazer or coat.
Truly lovely, these rosettes featured all kinds of images. Horses were an especially popular subject, and we’re lucky enough to have several examples in our collection.
This bridle rosette brooch features a liver chestnut horse with a bridle . It’s just about 1 3/4″ in diameter, and has a very substantial pin back. You can wear this pin confidently, knowing that the clasp is secure.
Here’s another great bridle rosette brooch. It has a vibrant dark red background – perfect for the holiday season! – and a spirited chestnut horse.
