Nice quality spurs, once a part of a New York general’s grouping.
Mexican War Era Serpentine Head Spurs.
The spurs are quite scarce. They lack their leather straps The patina is untouched on the brass, and I see no evidence that they were ever in gilt, just polished brass.
The serpent’s head is 32mm long; the spinning rowels are 15mm. Chain mesh made of brass as well hold the buckles that would retain the leather straps.
Fine condition. These were once part of a New York general officer’s grouping of the same period, with no identification to the own.
