Product Description

RARE HORSE BODY NET, PRESIDENT GRANT HORSE, STRANGE HORSE GARB
“STRANGE HORSE GARB”—ANTIQUE--HORSE BODY NET FOR DECORATION WITH A PRACTICAL USE TO HELP KEEP THE HORSE FLYS OFF. THE NET WOULD HELP WITH THE FLYS BY MOVING WHEN THE HORSE MOVED AND THE WHITE TASSELS WOULD HELP KEEP THE FLYS AT BAY.

THIS HORSE BODY NET WAS HANDMADE IN GERMANY MORE THEN 100 YEARS AGO. THE IMMIGRANT SETTLED IN KANSAS AND RAISED HORSES. THE NET WAS HANDMADE AND REMINDS ME OF A HOMEMADE FISH NET. THE OPEN JOINING SQUARES ARE ABOUT AN INCH. THE BEST THING I HAD TO DISPLAY THIS ANTIQUE TO YOU WAS TO DRAPE IT OVER THE FRONT AND HOOD OF MY CAR. DOUBLE CLICK ON THE FIRST PHOTO TO GET A BETTER VIEW.

THE HORSE BODY WAS USED FOR A FEW YEARS THEN STORED IN A TRUNK SINCE THE 1940’S. THE MATERIAL IS IN VERY GOOD CONDITION WITH ONLY TWO OR THREE SINGLE SQUARES NEEDING MENDING IF THE BUYER WISHES.

PLEASE OPEN THE SECOND PHOTO TO SEE A SIMILAR COVER TO THE ONE I AM SELLING. THE PHOTO IS FROM THE LIBRARY OF CONGRESS COLLECTION. THE HORSE AND SOLDIERS ARE FORMALLY DRESSED FOR A FUNERAL AND DEPICTS ULYSSES S. GRANT’S HORSE. NOTICE THE EMPTY BOOTS PLACED BACKWARDS IN THE STIRRUP AND THE DECORATIVE SADDLE BLANKET. PRESIDENT GRANT WAS THE 18TH PRESIDENT OF THIS UNITED STATES. HE DIED JULY 23, 1885.

WOW!! WHAT A UNIQUE ONE OF A KIND ANTIQUE MEMORABILIA. I DON’T KNOW HOW MUCH IT IS WORTH BUT I AM GUESSING IN THE DARK.
