Product Description

This is another rare piece being offered, it is a Civil War Heart Martingale. It is made of brass with a lead back, having three attachment hooks. It measures approximately 2 ¾” x 2 ½”. It was recovered many years ago just outside of Nashville, Tennessee.

The Martingale Heart was not issued by the military during the Civil War, but was privately purchased individually by Cavalry Officers of both the Union and the Confederacy. The martingale was used to adorn the breast strap on a harness rig.

This unique artifact obviously seen extensive use during the war. It has a beautiful untouched patina to the brass and there are remnants of the original leather on one of the hooks. There is a crudeness to this piece which may indicate southern manufacture. It comes in the glass top display case pictured.
