A Pair of Abumi (Japanese Stirrups) - Sold

These heavy stirrups are made of cast iron.
When they were made they would have been decorated with intricate patterns of inlaid silver wire decoration. Now only a few silver leaves remain, but the original channels engraved in the shapes of scrolling foliage can still be seen.
The surface of the iron is lightly oxidised.
Each stirrup has three square holes piercing its neck, the buckle tangs are still present and move.
The signatures on the front of the necks have been largely lost
