All Items : Antiques : Regional Art : Americas : South American : Implements : Pre 1837 VR item #1285640 (stock #W-MS1)
Ancient East
$385.00
DESCRIPTION: A classic and quite old pair of hand carved South American wood stirrups. The Guacho of Argentina, the Morochucos of Peru and the Hauso of Chile all preferred large wooden "shoes" for use as stirrups rather than the more prevalent iron stirrup. These stirrups cover the whole front of the foot, which can be an advantage when riding through tall brush. This pair has good age and obvious usage; we estimate them to date from the early 1800's. Each shoe is carved from a single piece...
All Items : Antiques : Decorative Art : Jewelry : Pre 1800 item #1427160
A beautiful in color, our "Queen Ann" turquoise paste necklace is set in silver and crafted of an unusual turquoise paste. Though dating to the mid 18th century, this style of jewelry was named for Queen Ann, who reigned during an earlier time, 1695 to 1714. The vivid foiled paste stones are faceted as cushion cuts. The necklace with its original fittings fastens with a black velvet ribbon. The silver closed back of the turquoise pastes are a work of art unto themselves. Exquisite.
