The spurs were made by Jesus Tapia in around 1920

Created circa 1920, the spurs feature a filigree floral motif and the original straps. Mexico-born Tapia (1856-1931) is regarded as among the most desirable spur makers in the world, renowned for his elaborate and elegant designs.

The spurs feature his mark on the reverse, along with his customary raised nipple conchos.
