Amongst the many industries that grew up in the Birmingham and surrounding area were brassfounding and leatherworking. Saddlery workshops specialised in the production of all types of leather horse equipment, incorporating locally manufactured brass fittings such as buckles, horse brasses, hame plates, terrets and other traditional components. The thick harness leather on this blinkered bridle by James Davies of Small Heath is stitched with linen thread.
