This strap with 25 new solid-brass bells has eleven #4 (1 1/2") bells at either end. In the center are a pair of #6 (1 3/4") bells and one #8 (2") bell. The abundance of #4 bells gives this strap a bright, loud, cheery sound, while the larger center bells add depth to the tone.
The pattern for this strap was adapted from a strap of antique bells I had the pleasure of restoring for a client some years ago. I really liked how the bells sounded together.
The lining is laced onto the bell strap using an attractive, durable design that originated in the mid-1800s. The finished piece is 1 1/2" wide and 57 inches long from buckle to buckle. The bell strap is finished with solid brass 7/8" buckles at both ends.
A separate billet is buckled on to complete the piece. With a correctly sized billet buckled onto the bell strap, this strap could be used as a neck strap for medium to large equines or as a body strap for smaller equines.
One billet is included. It fastens onto the buckles to complete the piece and adds 2 to 6 extra inches of length depending on which holes you use. Longer billets may be ordered separately to fit your horse.
Strap will be made from durable bridle leather in your choice of black, dark brown, or medium brown. View colors... It will have new solid-brass petal bells and buckle in your choice of gold or silver finish. More about our bells...
