Handsome and large is this English Bulldog brass finding with prongs. It measures 2 x 2 inches and I believe it is a decorative piece that possibly went on a leather horse harness. I’ve had something similar in the past with these same prongs and that was its function. There is nice detail in the bulldog including wrinkling, teeth and nice patina. I would guess it to be 100 years old or older and condition is very nice with just a two small areas of verdigris which is common to this age and material. It can sometimes be removed with metal cleaner but I think it gives a piece character. It is even nice than my pictures show it.
