Title Iron prick spur
Nationality European
Period 12th/13th century
Sold

This type of spur would have been worn in the Crusader armies in the early Middle Ages. They were really only superceded when the new style Gothic spurs appeared, with much longer shanks and the introduction of rowels in the 14th century.

This measures 9 cm across at the instep. Although heavily corroded and consolidated throughout (it is is a ground find), this has all its original form, with the added bonus of the original buckle for the strap, somewhat battered perhaps, but not often encountered on early pieces.

Bayonet arrived safe + sound this AM Sat. Special delivery excellent again. Worth the few extra bob. To be honest it was better than I dared hope. I usually avoid polished bits like the plague!! Your price was a bit fierce!! - but a great marking I lacked... Please email me anytime you have anything that might be of interest.
