Product Description

COWBOY SPURS, SPANISH, 38 POINTS ON THE ROWEL
THIS IS A PAIR OF PARADE SPURS. I HAD THEM SENT TO ME. I ONCE TRAVELED CHILE AND PATAGONIA COLLECTING SPURS AND OTHER SPANISH ITEMS LEFT BEHIND. THE SPANISH LEFT SOUTH AMERICA ABOUT 1800. I KNOW THESE SPURS HAVE BEEN USED A LOT BECAUSE OF THE WEAR IN THE ROWEL HOLES WHERE THEY ATTACH TO THE SPUR. THERE HAS BEEN A LOT OF SPINNING GOING ON OVER THE YEARS. THEY MAY HAVE BEEN WORN BY THE CONQUISTADORS IN SHOWS OR PARADES BECAUSE THEY ARE FANCY. THEY ARE IN PERFECT CONDITION. EACH HAVE 38 POINTS ON THE ROWEL. EACH ROWEL IS A 3.50" IN DIAMETER. BOTH ROWEL AND POINTS ARE IN GOOD CONDITION AND MAKE A NICE JINGLE SOUND WHEN THE ROWEL IS TURNED OR THE SPUR IS SHOOK. THIS SPUR IS MADE OF BRASS AND IS WITHOUT ANY MANUFACTURING MARKS. THE SPURS ARE 7.75" LONG AND 4.00" WIDE. THE SIDES AND ROWEL FRAMES ARE HIGHLY DECORATED.

WEBSTER DEFINES A ROWEL AS "A REVOLVING DISC WITH POINTS AT THE END OF A SPUR." COWBOYS, BRONCO RIDERS AND CATTLE DRIVERS ALL HAVE ROWELS ON THE ENDS OF THEIR SPURS BUT MANY LESS THAN THE SPANISH. I HAVE BEEN TOLD THE REASON THE AMERICAN COWBOY SPURS HAD LESS POINTS IS BECAUSE THE AMERICAN CARRIED MORE FOR THE EFFECTS ON THE CONDITION OF THE HORSE DUE TO SPURRING IT TO MAKE IT RUN. DATING BACK TO 700 BC THE SPUR HAS BEEN A WORKING PIECE OF EQUIPMENT FOR THE HORSEMAN. THE SPANISH CONQUISTADORS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR INTRODUCING THEIR STYLE OF SPURS TO THE AMERICAS IN THE EARLY 15 HUNDREDS. THIS STYLE OF SPUR HAS GREATLY INFLUENCED THE COWBOY SPUR WE KNOW TODAY. TODAY. SPURS ARE HIGHLY COLLECTABLE ITEMS OF MEMORABILIA.

YOUR COMPLETE SATISFACTION IS GUARANTEED. I HAVE NOT CLEANED THE SPURS.
