Presented is a fine matching pair of a military officer’s heavy brass-plated, cast iron stirrups from the Mexican War. In wonderful original condition, these equestrian artifacts are unmarked.  Each stirrup measures 5¼” high by 5” at the widest and is constructed of thick, heavy, brass plated iron. The exterior of each stirrup balloons outwards between a solid quarterstraps holder at the top of stirrup and a robust oval-ringed footpad at the base.  Riveted to three of the four exterior sidepieces is a large, cast, raised medallion that exhibits a spreadwinged eagle motif, similar to that of a bridle boss bit.  One eagle medallion has been lost. Retains much of its original brass plating but each stirrup exhibits a surface of flaking mellow bronze plating overall with normal dents and bends from use. A fine pair of seldom seen, Mexican War officer’s iron stirrups.
