This is a plume of grey horsehair (it may have once been dyed blue, but any vegetable dye has faded).
There is a stripe of black (? boot polish) on it, I may wash this off.
It is suspended from a brass globe with spiral decoration.
I believe it would have been worn under the throat of an officer's charger or a drumhorse, but I do not know which regiment
Horsehair : approx 18 inches (46cm) long,
Brass socket 1¾ inches (4.5cm) diameter
Ref : Misc193-plume
