Offered for purchase is a great older pair of target pattern California style spurs with nice straps. The heel bands of these single mounted spurs display a large, engraved silver button surrounded by ten small silver buttons and flanked on each side by silver appliques nicely etched in a floral pattern. The shanks, the chap guards and the rowel button are all decorated with silver flourishes. Add in the sturdy, nicely carved leather spur straps with a spectacular etched silver concho, the ten point rowels and the heel chains and these belong in your collection!
The history of bits and spurs in North America begins with the Spanish who first came to the new world in the 1500s, bringing horses and livestock with them. The Spanish colonial style is the predecessor of the Californian and Mexican styles we know today and this is a fine example.
