BIG MINTY ANTIQUE 2PATTERN SILVER ENGRAVED CHARCOAL BLUED SPURS~CHUMITIDO STRAPS
A MODERN SPUR MAKER IF HE COULD MAKE, AND WHAT HE WOULD CHARGE TO HAND FORGE, HAND CHISEL, HAND SILVER INLAY AND HAND ENGRAVE A PAIR OF SPURS LIKE THIS USING ONLY SIMPLE HAND align="center">
BIG MINTY ANTIQUE UNUSUAL 2 PATTERN SILVER ENGRAVED
CHARCOAL BLUED SPURS ~ CHUMITIDO STRAPS
This is a fine Investment grade, connoisseur near mint unique, custom made, matching pair of Antique Large & Heavy hand forged, WIDE heel band, heel banded (2 pounds 6 oz.), 2 pattern silver inlaid and engraved fancy Charro spurs; with fine 2 color black & white chumitiado (caterpillar) decorated spur straps. The quality and minty condition of these one-of-a-kind spurs is far superior to most. You will see dozens and dozens of pairs of spurs before you will see a fine pair like this. These Large spurs measure about 6 1/2" long overall. Both the outside and inside curved 1 1/2" wide x about 3/8" thick heel bands have ornate silver inlays in 2 different and distinctive patterns. Note that these are custom made spurs, with 2 different patterns of the inside & outside heel bands, buttons, shanks & rowels. This allows the wearer to simply change to a different set of spur straps on the spurs to create 2 entirely different looks to his pair of spurs; thus, creating what appears to be 2 different and distinct pairs of spurs.
The inside measurement of the heel bands of these full-sized Man's spurs at the open end is about 3 1/8". Note that the silver tarnish on these spurs are in untouched condition that advanced collector love to see; but it is very difficult to photograph a shiny object without getting shadows and shading variations. Both the outside & inside heel bands have a silver inlaid border along the entire spur, with fine wavy zig zag engraving and punch dot decoration. The outside heel band panels have a finely silver inlaid and engraved motif with an unusual 3 dimensional rose flower near the ends of the heel bands, surrounded by a very unusual pattern of 10 different intricate leaf pattern silver inlays with fine line engraving, zig zag engraving, and stippled (textured) engraving; intertwined by silver inlaid vines, and all in fine quality & detail, en suite with the inside leaf pattern motif. The inside heel bands have a completely different silver inlaid and engraved pattern, with 16 individual leaves with alternating line & zig zag engraved patterns, interconnected on a center vine; en suite with the outside leaf pattern motif.
The outside swinging buttons are hand forged into a 1 1/4" diameter domed flower pattern with 8 silver inlaid hand engraved petals with alternating patterns of fine zig zag engraving and a zig zag engraved decorated copper center. The round 1" diameter inside domed buttons are unique and completely different than the outside buttons, with a 6 petal flower pattern; but with alternating silver & copper inlaid & zig zag engraved petals en suite with the outside buttons. All the Iron swingers and buttons are original, with the unusual feature of the inside pins being flared when forged; en suite with the rowel pins.
The shanks are shaped in a unique shaped "triple 8" variation of the traditional figure 8 pattern, and are silver inlaid on both the inside and outside, with the outside and inside fine zig zag engraving and punch dot decorations done in 2 different patterns. The BIG 3 1/8" diameter hand forged rowels taper very slightly both in thickness and in width from the center towards the ends of the 8 tines. Both the outside and inside rowels have 8 silver inlaid and engraved panels; and both sides have a different style of zig zag engraving. The rowel pins are original, with the outside pins having bullet shaped finials, and the inside pins being flared when forged; en suite with the swinging button pins. These rowels have a nice chiming sound when spun; a technique used by accomplished spur makers.
These spurs have ALL of the silver intact. There are a couple of minor dings to the soft silver on the inside heel bands where the inside buttons came in contact with the silver heel bands, which is normal, and not distracting.
These are investment grade fine conditioned spurs, with strong traces of the original charcoal bluing on the heel bands and shanks. Almost all spurs have this original charcoal bluing completely removed when the silver is polished; thus, it is rare to see any bluing on the heel bands or shanks. These traces of original bluing are readily visible on the heel bands and shanks in direct sunlight. Most of the original charcoal bluing on the inside of the heel bands remains, demonstrating that these fine condition spurs have seen little actual use. It is apparent that these spurs have been well cared for, "put up", and stored properly for decades. These spurs come from South of the Border down Old Mexico way, and have nice aged patina overall. Complete with fine & fancy suede leather lined 2 color, black & white chumitiado (caterpillar) spur straps, with some of the border stitching worn; mostly on the inside, non-display side. These are Large, eye appealing, Investment grade, connoisseur near mint condition, unique pattern custom made spurs, with much of the original charcoal bluing remaining on the spurs. These would fit into any spur collection, Equestrian, Cowboy, Cowgirl, Vaquero, Charro, Charita, Mexican, Mexico, Old West, Western, Wild West, South of the Border, Folk art, or Western Americana display; or, could still be worn today.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
