Title Iron stirrup
Nationality German
Period c 1550
Price £270.00

This is a good example of an early stirrup from the mid-16th century. It was found on the outskirts of Edinburgh some years ago and is, in all probability, of either German or perhaps Austrian origin. The motifs are largely of the shell variety, typical of this period on ironwork like sword hilts and other horse furniture.

The piece is made from a lap weld construction. The ring for the stirrup leather has opened on the weld and there may have been a rivet holding this element in place, which is now missing. However, its overall condition for a piece well over 400 years old, is pretty good! The internal ironwork has a russet finish and the exterior has been carefully cleaned at some stage.

testimonials

Just to let you know that the bayonets arrived safely this morning and I am extremely happy! They are everything that I had hoped they would be, but better! I am extremely pleased that i purchased them from you. The 1867 Albini ... is an absolute beauty, the blade is immaculate. The other is in fact in far better condition that I had imagined as well. So all in all, I couldn't be happier! Many thanks Chris.

I very much look forward to doing business with you again in the near future.
