The saddle chime is a beauty as Rita points out. It is somewhat unique in that it has two tiers. It is also unique in the design of its mounting. These usually have a loop at the base of each arm of the harp that allows it to be screwed into the harness. I’ve also seen these multitiered chimes with a central post to permit mounting to the harness. In this case your chime has perpendicular prongs that permit it to be driven into a more elaborate piece of harness. ABA Member Don Livingston may be able to help you out with further information or an estimate of value. He has a particular interest in unusual horse bells. This is a unique and beautiful chime.
