RARE VINTAGE Lady Leg w GARTER horse bit silver brass

This auction is for a very old horse bit that has the form of a woman's leg on both of the outsides .
The hip and boot seem to be brass .
The nylon stocking part appears as silver with "stitching " up the front , back and center of the stockings part,
and the garter part on the thigh is also brass .
This is sold, as is, not cleaned , just as we got it .
It has lots of wear, as you can see ....
It looks as though the silver part might clean up .
This unusual bit measures 5 5/8" from leg to leg, if you will..
And each side measures almost 6" long.
I would guess it to be, from the 1800's and from Texas or Mexico , of course .
Some wild west cowboy that was a "ladies man" , likely owned it !
