Historic Twin Branch Saddle Rack

From The Hanbury Stables, Newmarket, Suffolk, England
Carved Wood with Original Painted Surface
Inscribed 'Hanbury Stables, Newmarket'
English c. 1880
6.00" high x 41.50" wide x 17.50" deep
From the historic heart of British horse racing, this rare survival from the Hanbury Stables retains its fine original sign writing and is in as found original condition. Made to support two racing saddles and long enough to hold other tack, it could now serve well as a towel, hat, coat rail, if not for its original purpose. A lovely piece of flat racing history and a unique survival.
