CIVIL WAR PERIOD EAGLE HEAD SPURS

$795.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 1043-349

This is an interesting pair of eagle head spurs where the sidebars themselves swell out and then taper down to accentuate the swept-back effect of the eagle’s wings. Of polished steel, the entire surface of the bars is deeply scored with angled lines top and bottom from the neck of the spur all the way back to the rounded slots, with just a short transitional area that in outline mimics a spread-winged American eagle. The rowels are in place, have thick points that are all present, and turn freely. The eagle heads have eyes, beak, crown and neck feathers, but like the feathers of the side-bar wings are not delicately detailed, relying for effect instead on the sleek wind-swept overall impression of the casting. They are an impressive set of spurs appropriate for any mounted officer, but especially one in the cavalry.  [sr]
