Spurs were given to new knights by the lord they served. They were a symbol of their noble status. Prick Spurs were used throughout Europe from the 11th to the 14th centuries. This particular pair has similarities to one I photographed at the Royal Ontario Museum (last picture in the listing). According to their caption, this shape of pyramidal prick was common around 1200-1300.

This is a complete and ready to use set made of leather and solid brass. The double strap is securely attached with brass plates to the metal spur. They fasten securely over a boot with a brass buckle. Current straps are a dark brown.

Spur Length (tip of spur to end of brass arm): 14 cm
Strap Length: 24 cm
Strap with Buckle Max Length: 40 cm
* All measurements are approximate, as these are handmade slight variations may exist.

Please Note - Although these spurs are functional they should not be used indiscriminately on live horses. They are purely for decorative use. See your local equestrian organization for information on the ethical use of spurs.
