A fabulous Pair of Genuine Antique 18th century Spanish Colonial Stirrup shoes. These are seriously old and show a lot of wear signs, and some damage to the wood. Each one has been hand carved from one piece of solid wood then intricately carved with wonderfully detailed designs. An iron spike with loop has been inserted in the top of each one for attaching the leather saddle straps. Size is 8" in height to iron loop top, 8 3/4 in width and x 5 1/2" deep.
Wooden stirrup shoes similar to these were made by Conquistadors in Spanish America from the early 16th century. Today similar items are still made for ceremonial use.
The Spanish Colonial Era ended in Peru in 1821....when it was liberated from Spanish rule by the successful occupation of Lima by the Argentine general Jose de San Martin (1778-1850) in 1821.
