A French Artillery Bridle

This bridle is made of dark leather, it is still flexible but slightly oily.
The headpiece has two leather loops holding hooks, between them there is a chain (I think a replacement) over the top of it.
There are stitch marke in the centre of the headpiece where a strap would have held the chain in place. There are oval gilt rosettes on each side of the browband.
The cheekpieces have steel D-rings pointing bacwards - these would have held the T-bars of a watering snaffle.
The steel curb bit is in good condition
It has curved cheeks, each has a pressed brass boss or badge showing crossed canons and a grenade.
One cheek is stamped "GG" and "17", the other "M.E", there are some other illegible stamps.
The cheeks are joined by a curved shackle bar.
The bit still has its original curb hooks and chain.

Bit mouthpiece 4¾ inches (12cm)
