    Description

    Exceptional Huntsville, Texas Prison Inmate Made Spurs. Classic Huntsville styling with an elaborate but naively etched vine and leaf pattern on the yoke and shank. The spurs are fitted with unusual 1.25" brass rowels and brass floral engraved buttons. The spurs are complete with black leather basket-stamp straps. Huntsville prison-made spurs were rarely marked by their inmate makers but are easily identifiable to collectors by their unique styling. There are no known records of Huntsville spur patterns making each pair essentially a one-of-a-kind creation. This is a superb pair in excellent condition with only some light wear to the leather straps.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
