FINE ANTIQUE ORNATE DOUBLE MOUNTED SILVER INLAID
CUSTOM RA SPURS FANCY STRAPS
align="center">ASK A MODERN SPUR MAKER WHAT HE WOULD CHARGE TO HAND FORGE, HAND CHISEL,
HAND INLAY AND HAND ENGRAVE A PAIR OF SPURS LIKE THIS USING ONLY SIMPLE HAND ANTIQUE ORNATE DOUBLE MOUNTED SILVER INLAID CUSTOM RA SPURS FANCY CHUMITIADO STRAPS
This is a Fine, custom made, fancy, unusual, Antique hand forged, heavy (almost 3 pounds!), double-silver inlaid & engraved matching pair of Charro spurs with initials inlaid on the top of the heel bands and fancy 2 color chumitiado (caterpillar) wool embroidered spur straps. There are the owners initials "R.A." inlaid in silver & engraved on the tops of the heel bands (see image). These spurs were made completely by hand with just simple hand tools such as hammers, files hand drills and hand grindstones. The inlays are different, in that they have an almost Folk Art style and craftsmanship. The inlay material is also different. Mexican spur makers would use whatever materials or combination of materials they had at hand to do inlays; brass, bronze, copper, .800 silver coins or .925 coin silver or any combination of these melted metals. These inlays have the appearance of German silver inlays, but that metal was not used in spur inlays, since different type of silver was plentiful and easier to work in doing inlays. This is some combination of metals; and in my opinion, is a combination of coin silver combined with other metals on hand. This is unusual, and I have only seen a few other spurs with a similar inlay color. Being hand forged Iron, the inside measurement of the heel bands of these full sized Man's spurs vary slightly at the open end; about 3 1/8" to 3 1/4". The spurs measure about 6" long overall. Both the outside and inside silver inlaid curved WIDE 1 3/8" heel bands taper from about 1/2" THICK at the shank, to about 5/16" THICK at the ends of the heel bands. The outside heel bands have extra detail and extra work in the inlaid patterns, with very fine & unusual punch dot engraving in the center and Aztec border motif. They have silver inlaid borders in the Aztec pattern, with an inlaid border above and below. There is a half diamond pattern motif in the center panels, and the top, bottom and ends all have a diagonal striped border pattern. The inside heel bands have the traditional striped pattern of silver inlays, but in an upright vertical style variation. The outside swinging buttons are hand forged into a 1 1/8" diameter domed button with 5 inlaid silver panels stylized in the Aztec pattern, en suite with the heel bands, with very fine & unusual punch dot engraving. The 7/8" diameter inside domed buttons are unadorned Iron. All the waisted Iron swingers and buttons are original & matching. The shanks are heavy duty; 3/4" across, and shaped in the form of the traditional figure 8 with silver inlays on both the insides and outsides. The outside shanks are silver inlaid with the Aztec pattern and striped diagonal border decoration, en suite with the heel bands, with very fine & unusual punch dot engraving. The outside shanks are curved so that the silver inlays show in both the top and bottom views. The inside shanks have a simple silver inlaid border. The hand forged rowels vary slightly in size; from 2 7/16" to 2 1/2" in diameter with exceptional craftsmanship. Each of the 8 tines on the outside of each rowel have 8 or 9 silver double inlaid chevrons with 2 separate silver inlays for each. Each rowel has around 65 individual silver chevron inlays. Thus, each rowel has about 130 individual silver inlays; about 260 total. The inside rowels are unadorned. The outside rowel pins have fancy bullet shaped finials, each with a hard to engrave silver inlaid spiral design. These spurs have almost all of the silver intact, with a few minor dings as can be expected. Of the hundreds of individual inlays, there are just a few small to tiny inlays that are missing; but these are hardly noticeable unless you are looking for them, and are not distracting to the overall presentation of the spurs. There are two 3/8" small silvers missing of the diagonal border design at the end of the left heel band, three tiny slivers varying from 1/16" to 3/16" of inlay missing on the bottom of the left heel band, and one 3/16" inlay missing from the right spur lower Aztec border design. Overall, these Antique spurs are in fine condition considering their age; used & well cared for, but not abused. These Antique spurs come from South of the Border down Old Mexico way, and have the nice, untouched aged patina overall that collectors love. These are complete with fancy, high quality, very fine condition, large (2" wide) calf skin lined spur straps with 1/2" wide 2 color traditional red & black chumitiado (caterpillar) tufted wool embroidered border decoration, with nickel plated roller buckles. These big, HEAVY, handsome, investment quality custom made spurs with exceptional rowel work and unusual pattern & engraving style would fit into any Spur, Equestrian, Cowboy, Cowgirl, Vaquero, Charro, Charrita, Mexican, Mexico, Old West, Western, Wild West, South of the Border, Folk art, or Western Americana display or & ELECTRONIC FUNDS TRANSFER, e-CHECKS & ALL MAJOR CREDIT & DEBIT CARDS THROUGH PAY PAL.
