Pair of Large Gaucho Spurs decorated with Dragons. A matched pair of spurs made of a silver coloured metal, probably Alpacca or a similar nickel alloy. Both sides of both spurs are decorated with dragons. They have large circular heelplates with cast decoration. The spur necks are cast in the shape of dragons or sea monsters. They have large steel sawtooth rowels, the steel shows a little surface oxidation and one of the teeth is broken. There is a white metal disc on each side of each rowel. There are no maker’s marks or stamps. Both spurs have metal fatigue cracks on the inside of the heel bands (please see images). One has been soldered but both weaken the spurs, making them more suitable for display than actual use. Please ask for more images if you need them.
