Pair of Tack Room Brackets

These items at Smith’s Tavern are a pair cast iron tack room brackets, most likely handmade by a blacksmith versus mass manufactured.  These brackets were used in the room in or attached to a stable for the storage and maintenance of riding tack (such as saddles and bridle) known as a tack room.  One of the best ways to organize a tack room was to maximize the use of the room’s wall space. Brackets were used to hang various items such as bridles, harnesses or clothing.
