Description

Originally used to gather together the reins when a horse is stabled overnight, the weight of lignum vitae wood gave a reassuring resistance. Worn smooth in use in the 1800s these chogs, like a giant's worry beads, are immensely tactile. Exquisitely simple - a decorative example of form, function and feel in one.
