These beautiful, authentic, heavy duty Mexican Caballero spurs and horseshoe bookends are a collectors delight. They are black with detailed glyphs and design etched into the heavy metal spurs with inlay of silver flowers and leaves. The spurs of the popular imagination are those made in the 19th-century American west, particularly in the Southwest, where the influence of Mexican jewelers and silversmiths had an huge impact on the design of these tools to spur horses to action. The rowel pins have a sweet chime when wheeled. These fancy and fine detailed handmade spurs and horse shoes were found at a estate sale in El Paso Texas presuming the guy was a REAL cowboy , due to his home and decor. What a unique gift for that person, who's hard to buy for.
