Vintage Antique Western Maker Marked Handmade Gal Leg Spurs 1866-1926 For Sale
VINTAGE ANTIQUE WESTERN HANDMADE GAL LEG COWBOY SPURS BY AUGUST BUERMANN.BUERMANN CAME OVER FROM GERMANY IN 1864 HE FOUND EMPLOYMENT WITH BARCLAY SADDLERY AND STAYED FOR 6 MONTHS WHEN THE CIVIL WAR BROKE OUT. HE TOOK ANOTHERS PLACE IN THE WAR FOR MONEY AND WHEN THE WAR WAS OVER HE RETURNED AND BOUGHT THE SADDLERY HE WORKED AT. IT TURNED OUT TO BE A VERY SMART MOVE AND HE TURNED THIS SMALL SADDLERY INTO A MONSTER BUSINESS PROVIDING THE USA WITH TACK AND ALL TYPES OF MILITARY HARDWARE. THIS GREAT PAIR OF SPURS HAVE GAL LEG SHANKS AND THE FAMOUS STAR MARK ON THE HEELBAND BY THE BUTTON ON BOTH SPURS. NICE SILVER MOUNTING ON THE SHANK , HEELBANDS, AND SPUR BUTTONS WITH OLD STYLE ENGRAVING. GREAT LOOKING VERY COLLECTIBLE PAIR MADE BETWEEN 1866-1926.
MEASUREMENTS ARE HEELBAND OPENING 3", HEELBAND WIDTH TAPERED 5/8" DOWN TO 1/2",GAL LEG SHANKS 2 1/4",ROWELS 1 1/2". OVERALL CONDITION IS VERY GOOD. I THINK ONE OF THE GAL LEG SILVER BOOTS HAS BEEN REMOUNTED SOMETIME IN THE SPURS LIFE BUT WITH A PAIR OF SPURS THAT ARE IN THE 100 YEAR OLD RANGE THIS IS VERY NORMAL AND ACCEPTABLE.THESE SPURS ARE GREAT RARE AND WOULD MAKE A GOOD ADDITION TO ANY COLLECTION.
