Timeless are pleased to offer a beautiful 1st - 2nd century A.D. Roman Harness Mount.


Cast in bronze, this lovely little mount displays a double arm form with three bosses. 


Harness mounts were used to embellish the leather straps of a horse's harness, which included the bridle, chest strap, and saddle. These decorative elements served both functional and aesthetic purposes, reinforcing the harness structure and showcasing the wealth and status of the owner. In a society where horses were symbols of power, prestige, and military might, the elaboration of their accoutrements was a matter of social importance.


Around 4cm in length.




  • Acquired by Timeless on the UK Antiquities Market, 2020, previously forming part of a private Austrian collection formed since 1970.
