Antique Cast Iron Indo-Persian Stirrups

Antique Cast Iron Indo-Persian Stirrups

57.00

Rare piece of horse furniture. These are typically attributed to the Ottoman Empire (Turkey etc..). This large forged heavy brass stirrup has a lot of wear and weight. Would have been made for a large rider. Nice patina, scrapes and dings (a few small holes where the metal has worn through). Incised line decorations at the top, sides, and bottoms. Not marked. What a gift for the equestrian! Date is not known, but 1800's or earlier seems very likely.
