A huge pair of fabulously decorated SHOE STIRRUPS from Peru ....The style dates to the Colonial Era period mid 1800's but they were probably made in the early 1900's. The Shoe Stirrups have hand-carved wooden shoes overlaid in sheet Alpacca Silver that is beautifully decorated in repousse with the addition of a Wolfs Head at each of the four corners of both pieces. These Shoe Stirrups are larger and more elaborate than any others we have ever seen .... each one weighs approximately 2 kilos and measures 10 inches in height, 9 1/2" in width, and 7" in depth at the widest extremities. These stirrups would have for 'special occaision' use...parades and festivals etc and this pair do not appear to have ever been used. Simply outstanding Museum Quality Collectors pieces that will "display" beautifully.
