Chilean Huaso Spurs

 

This rare and authentic pair of Chilean spurs is stunning to behold. Traditionally worn by huasos, or Chilean cowboys, these silvered steel spurs, or espuelas, were given by Chile's ambassador to the French ambassador in the late 19th century. Exhibiting exceptional decoration, these spurs are distinguished by the number of spokes they possess, and by the wonderful “singing” sound they produce when spun. Housed in their original presentation case, these intriguing pieces are extraordinary examples of South American artistry.
