Victorian English Brass "Snaffle" Chain Photo Frame (LEO Design)

A "Snaffle" is a style of equestrian "bit"—that is, the metal device held in the mouth of a horse which allows the rider to control his steed.  And, considering England's horsey heritage, an equestrian aesthetic should be a tried-and-true favorite.  This little brass frame, made in the 1880's or 1890's, will lend a handsome (and horsey) feeling to your bookshelf, mantlepiece or bedside.  Please click on the photo above to learn more about this frame.
