Cavalry Box Spurs

Henry Maxwell, a London spur maker, invented the true box spur in the early nineteenth century. The metal prong between the arms of the spur slots into a spring-loaded "box" in the heel of the boot. This design means that the hole in the boot cannot clog with dirt, and that the spurs do not require additional straps and buckles.

This pair are made of white metal, each has a straight neck with a plain rowel decorated with a star pattern. The shafts for the box are stamped "left" and "right"
