Late 16th-early 17th century
Fine brass spur with much original gilding remaining. This is an extremely fine spur. It retains it rowel, 2 buckles and all mounting chains. It has full "crane neck" form and a fine large rowel. The main body of the spur is formed of a short bar that curves around the heel. This terminates in a hinge on each end that forms the mount for chains that continue to a terminating plate that carries the buckles. Both buckles are on the same side of the spur. Both mounts missing from the other end.
