    This is a RARE item, over 170 years old, one hundred a small cylindrical wooden case containing a scroll, which gives 'The Freedom of The City of London' to the named bearer, Isaac George Bryant, a member of the Worshipful Company of Loriners, in 1850. The Loriners were members of one of the oldest of two worshipful companies, established in the 12th century, who made and sold Bits, Bridles, Spurs, Stirrups and the minor metal items of a horse’s harness, together with the Saddle Tree. The word itself is derived from the Latin word 'Lorum', a Thong, Bridle or Reins, and seems to have entered the English language, from the French.

     
    The wooden holder also holds a receipt for 19th January 1854, detailing a 'Livery fine' of £12 14s 6d - which would have been over £1,000 today and the equivalent of over 60 days of paid work for a skilled man, in the 1850's.
     
    This is an incredible find, a wonderful piece of social history, and would be a fine addition to a collection of curiosities.
