period authentic – Spanish Conquistador STIRRUPS

NOTICE

********NOW OPERATING FROM OUR NEW HEADQUARTERS ********



Now fully operational from the beautiful Pacific North West, we encourage all to keep a close eye as we unpack posted offerings and continue what will be an ongoing effort of unpacking the collection while taking stock with an eye toward thinning out our accumulation of treasures. After years of seeking out and acquiring all manner of quality antique Americana from simple but seldom surviving items of special interest to historically important treasures, Janet and I look forward to offering the fruits of our years of seeking out such to new and appreciative homes.

A bit of a departure from our usual but in the spirit of something for everyone we could not resist the opportunity to acquire this period authentic pair of bronze Spanish Conquistador stirrups. Offered here as found, and unpolished with an attractive natural age patina, this authentic matched pair of Conquistador saddle stirrups measure a full 11 ¼ inches in length, are 4 inches wide by 5 ½ inches high and should not be confused with later, popularly cast smaller display examples. Most likely evolving in Europe to aid rider stability under the weight of protective armor, utilization of these heavy enclosed stirrups not only offered protection but provided a solid base from which the advancing horseman could stand while wielding sword or lance. While widely thought to have been introduced to this continent by Spanish Conquistadors it is believed that such were also subsequently produced on this continent. A nice display item on the shelf, the shape and construction of these stirrups would lend themselves well to wall display. Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales! Just send us a courtesy e-mail to let us know your item will be returned per these provisions and your purchase price will be refunded accordingly. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!
