Metal has been used for footwear all over the world since the advent of metalsmithing. Precious metals like sterling silver, however, are much rarer because of the cost of the material and relative fragility. This single silver stirrup would have been used by an Argentine woman in the 18th century to ride on her horse; only one stirrup is needed for side-saddle style riding so it is not part of a more traditional pair. Deep repousse flower patterns The suspension loop is attached to the arch with a hand design. The stirrup can still swing from the arch. Strangely for such a well-made piece this stirrup is not stamped or marked with a makers name. Look closely at the pictures and imagine the hours upon hours of work that went into hand making this piece with all of its very detailed fine Chasing and Repousse'. A lot of passion and skill went into the making of this piece along with a craft that has been long gone. Weight over 600 grams each coin silver.

What a unique and fantastic gift this would make to anyone that appreciates fine art work, or that hard to surprise Equestrian in your life! Please refer to pictures and ask questions. We are showing these as a pair but will sell separate per request. $500.00 each.
