    Nice chain, what was it for

    Right on the edge of 1800s cellar hole. Not iron, well made. What was it for?

    Depending on it's size I would say part of a horse bridle.
    My wife does all the driving, I just hold the steering wheel.

    Never seen a bridle made out of chains .. that would peel the flesh off.
    That which can be asserted without evidence, can be dismissed without evidence.

    Human decency is not derived from religion. It precedes it.

    If it helps for size, the chain is on a 1/2 paper towel

    If it's not iron, I would agree with the above comment that it is part of a horse bridle. Here's a photo of an antique brass bit and curb chain.Click image for larger version.

    After looking at the source of your photo, I am 100% certain that those chains were never part of a bridle or bit.

    Well if it isn't iron - I'll eat my hat.

    D ring on either end-I'd bet it's part of a harness set up.
