A fabulous old Stirrup shoe made for a lady who would have ridden side-saddle behind the rider so one only shoe was needed. I'm told that these shoes were usually fashioned from old melted down brass cannon balls. Hard to date precisely but it is from the Spanish Colonial era around the late 18th-to early 19th century. Nicely engraved with ornate Colonial decoration ...the stirrup shoe is 10" in length. A really nice old Peruvian historical piece.
