Object Description

A fine Luristan bronze horse bridle bit featuring terminal rings in different sizes. The item is joined at the smaller rings; an unadorned bars extends from each side and splays out into a large terminal ring, through which the cheek pieces would have originally passed. This piece would have sat in the horse’s mouth attached to the reins giving the rider more control over the animal. A brown and green patination remains on the surface.

Date: Circa 1800-600 BC
