Pair of Period Mexican War Officer’s Stirrup Irons, Brass Clad, Eagle Medallions 
Patriotic Eagle Medallions, Iron and Hot Dipped Brass, entire view

A very good matching pair of seldom seen military mounted officer’s brass-plated, cast and wrought iron
stirrups dating to the Mexican War…or earlier. In very good original condition, these equestrian artifacts
are unmarked. The stirrups feature bulbous ovoid sides; surmounted with open rectangular box-slot for
stirrup leathers; open footbeds with bowed ends. The exterior sides are ornamented with cast brass
raised medallions featuring spread winged eagles clutching arrows and olive branches; flowing
ribbon/banner within mouths. The stirrups retain most of their brass; decorative brass provided
corrosion resistance and was very decorative, especially after polishing. Very minor scattered edge
wear; minor loss to one outside edge of footbed, the other footbed with substantial losses, likely the
riders mounting and dismount stirrup. Very old patina, likely not polished or cleaned in a hundred years.
Each stirrup measures approximately 6 by 6-inches.
