Serendipity Designs by Susan writes about the “History of the Horse Bridle Rosette”:
It has been written that the rosettes originated in ancient Egypt. The Egyptians, being superstitious, decorated their brides in order to direct the “evil eye” to the beautiful bridle rosettes in order to spare their horses from harm. That superstition continued into the Victorian era. Rosettes were produced from the 1800’s to about the 1950’s. They were often used to decorate a child or woman’s horse bridle. They were also used by the U.S. Cavalry in simpler forms made of backlite or silver and by some companies as an advertising tool. The rosette is domed glass, or paperweight style, with a brass or base metal back and is 75 to 100 pluss years old.
