OBJECT D’ ART SPURS

This is a fine, fancy investment quality One-of-A-Kind Antique, Minty, hand forged, exceptional silver inlaid pair Charro spurs in an intricately detailed stippled (textured) engraved 3 panels of both the inside and outside heel bands: with the original spur straps with silver engraved buckles. As only found on custom made to order spurs, this pair was originally Gold Washed which is a very thin plating that is impractical for spurs, but very flashy when new. This gold film can easily be rubbed off with the fingers and would be removed if the spurs were polished, along with the original Charcoal bluing; yet this pair still has most of its bluing, thin in some areas, and traces of the original gold wash in protected areas such as the rowel tines. These custom-made to order antique spurs were made in Amozoc, Mexico, the spur capital of Mexico for hundreds of years; and were completely hand crafted by Master Artisans using only basic hand tools such as hammers, files, chisels, and hand drills. The pair of strap buckles, shanks, top and bottoms of the shanks, signature Amozoc rowels with each tine having 4 panels, both inside and outside 3 panel buttons, and outside rowel pins are extensively & finely hand chiseled and silver inlaid and hand engraved with dozens of individual silver inlays.

These are Man’s size spurs, 6" long overall. Being hand forged, the dimensions vary slightly. The heel band openings vary from 3” to 2 7/8” at the open ends. Both the inside and outside heel bands are about 1 7/16” tall x about 7/16" thick. It is a very unusual feature that both the inside and outside heel bands are sculptured by hand forging, grinding and filing to form 3 separate silver inlaid and engraved panels, with dozens of finely detailed individual silver inlays that are hand chiseled hand inlaid and hand engraved one at a time for contrast. This hand forging with intricate and detailed chiseling / inlay work is a lost art in spur craftsmanship. Most fancy spurs were worn extensively and handed down from generation to generation. These spurs have almost all the original Charcoal bluing on the inside of the heel bands; a confirmation of their minty condition with little actual wear. Weight for the pair is 2 lbs. 14.4 ounces.

The hand forged, silver inlaid, and engraved, charcoal blued 1 5/8” x 1 3/8” California clip style buckles are very unusual on a pair of spurs, and demonstrate their uniqueness, with engraving patterns en suite to the heel bands. The large 1 1/8" diameter outside domed swinging buttons are hand forged with 3 separate silver inlaid and engraved panels in a scroll pattern, en suite with the heel bands. The slightly smaller 15/16" diameter inside swinging buttons are also hand forged with 3 separate silver inlaid and engraved panels in a scroll pattern, en suite with the heel bands. The button swingers are original and have rounded tops, found on quality spurs. Because the spurs are double silver mounted, the owner had the option to change the look of the spurs with a different pair of fancy spur straps, and wear either side of the spur to the outside.

Both the insides and outsides of the unusual Horseshoe shaped shanks are silver inlaid. The tops and bottoms of both sides of the shank have silver inlaid and engraved panels which were more costly; and a characteristic found only on custom made spurs. The hand forged Amozoc style 8 rowel pattern vary slightly and are about 2 5/8" in diameter and taper slightly from the inside to the outside. Each of the (8) tines on both the inside and outside of each spur rowel have 2 flat chiseled panels that are finely inlaid and intricately engraved. Thus, the rowels alone have a total of 64 individual silver panels with zig zag engraving patterns. As is typical of almost all spurs with inlaid rowels, the silver on the rowels is the first to go; but these rowels have all their silver inlays intact; and even have traces of the original gold wash. The outside rowel pins are blunt nosed bullet shaped with 4 silver inlaid and engraved scroll decorations. The inside rowel pins are finished with a small silver dome.

All the fine quality hand chiseled individual silver inlays are intact with no inlays missing any of the silver. These fine spurs show noticeably light wear from use and have a nice aged patina overall to the silver inlays. Anytime you see the original charcoal bluing on the spurs, you know the spurs are in fine condition. This pair has most all the original charcoal bluing that can easily be seen indirect sunlight, and most of this bluing remains on the inside of the heel bands. This pair is complete with fine calf skin leather lined spur straps with fancy white leather buck stitching with tooled borders and small punch dot decorations. The large and rare charcoal blued buckles are silver inlaid and stippled engraved scroll patterns, en suite with the heel bands. Note there is a small area on the inside of one spur strap where the lining wore, causing a crease in the thick outside leather. There is some old glue on the inside to reinforce the leather. This area is reinforced on both sides with the heavy-duty stitching, is stable, not noticeable on the outside, and left as found. However, you would not want to wear the spurs to keep the original straps intact. These spurs are in minty condition overall, especially given their extreme 100 years if age, circa 1920’s. They retain most of the orginal charcoal bluing and traces of the original gold wash, with the orginal straps; all with a fine natural patina overall that collectors love to see.

This high quality, Investment grade, Connoisseur pair of spurs originally came from South of the Border, down Old Mexico way. PROVENANCE: I purchased these spurs around 15 - 20 years ago from an Old Timer Ray Wheeler and his wife Judy who ran the Winchester show in Cody, Wyoming for many years. These spurs would fit into any Spur, Espuela, Equestrian, Cowboy, Cowgirl, Vaquero, Charro, Charita, Mexican, Mexican Revolution, Old West, Western, Wild West, South of the Border or Western Americana collection. Or, display in any office, den or Man Cave.
