Pair of silver spurs.
Argentine coast. Late 19th century, or early 20th century.
Cast and chiseled silver. Measurements. Length: 16 cm / 6.3 in. Weight (of both): 653 gr.
Its smooth arch ends in two hands that hold a ring with closures for the lower instep, absent in this pair. It has a small roll, openwork and chiselled, with scalloped edges, to which the chains of the pry springs cling. The shank presents a very successful figure of a mythological fish (dolphin) in whose mouth the axis of the slices passes, made of iron and with their tips removed so as not to hurt the horse. It has a smooth silver dust cover.
The absence of gold places this variant in Argentine territory, since in the case of related models, the Brazilian and Uruguayan women were decorated with that metal.
