This stunning pair of bridle rosettes dates to the early 1900s and once adorned the bridle of a Forester Drill tram horse. Glass dome on a brass holder, silver background, the MWA logo in a gold star emblem. Modern Woodmen of America was a fraternal organization founded in 1883 by Joseph Cullen Root in Lyons, Iowa. One of the most unique elements of the organization was its drill team, which came to be known as the Modern Woodmen Foresters. First organized in 1894, these drill teams became nationally known from the 1890s through the late 1930s; they were even honored by Hebert Hoover at the White House. Excellent antique condition with one note: there is a small clear chip on the border of the glass/brass one one rosette and some light scratches overall on both. Extremely rare to find a matched pair. Each measure 1 ¾ inches wide x ½ inch deep, sold as a pair only.
