These stirrups are made of brass or bronze, the metal has a good greenish patina. They are rounded with a rectangular suspension loop at the top of each stirrup, these loops have twisted "rope-like" decoration on one side.
There is a rib along the underside of each tread.
This stirrup design is typically African, often associated with the Dogon people of Mali or the Mossi of Burkina Fasso. They are made by lost wax casting, there is an excellent blog about this technique at Sahel Design
