Vintage Antique Silver Copper Accent GAL-LEGS Old Cowboy Spurs c1920s McChesney

Old set of spurs with lady figure showing off her legs, circa 1920s era or earlier. The other side features a floral motif. Copper/gold accents. Spurs are double mounted with swing out buttons. Very nice spurs.Came from a private collection in Santa Monica California. Previous owner claims these were made in the 1910s/1920s, most likely JR McChesney, who pioneered the Gal-Legs design. The Chesney Gal-Legs designs were often copied by other artists and blacksmiths. The Nocona Boot Company of Texas purchased the McChesney products and name in 1929 and produced the bits and spurs of JR McChesney until 1933. No marks on this one.

Absolutely exquisite and highly collectible!

** John Robert McChesney was born in South Bend, Indiana in 1867. At age of 20, J.R. McChesney purchased the contents of a bankrupt blacksmith shop in Tulsa, Okla., and moved it 12 miles away, to a town called Broken Arrow. In 1890, he moved to Gainesville, Texas, and finally settled back in Oklahoma in 1907 where his factory in Pauls Valley became the largest bit and spur manufacturer in the world.McChesney’s success can be attributed to his flair for design.His many unique spur styles are named for their appearance, such as ’Gal-leg,’ ’Goose Neck,’ ’Prairie Tulips,’ ’Leaves,’ ’Hearts,’ ’Peanut,’ and ’Peacock'.It’s important to note that although McChesney died in 1928, his factory was sold to Nacona Boot Co., who began marking their spurs with the McChesney name.During his lifetime, McChesney made spurs for many well-known cowboys, including Will Rogers and Tom Mix. He also employed many other men who would go on to become famous in their own right, including Pascal Moreland (P.M.) Kelly. The ’Kelly Bros.’ mark (used in anticipation of the day when his younger brothers might join him in business) is also much in demand with collectors, as is ’KB & P,’ the mark of his partnership with another former McChesney employee, Clyde Parker (1912-1919). **
