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 They were only superceded when the new style Gothic spurs appeared, with much longer shanks and the introduction of rowels in the 14th century.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 at the instep and is only lightly corroded in parts. The rust has been consolidated and, apart from two corroded patches, is in exellent condition. Having said all that, I am fairly certain that this was a ground find.

testimonials

Wanted to let you know the items arrived today. Great job on the packing. Too often I buy very expensive and irreplaceable items from the UK and they get sent barely packed to protect them from the various postal services - appreciate you going the extra mile to insure it arrived in the shape it left. Thanks again, look forward to doing business with you in the future. Items were very nice, exactly as offered.

...the sword arrived safely today... My son, who shares my interest in antique edged weapons and for whom I bought the sword, is delighted.
