    Description

    John Robert McChesney. McChesney No. 29 - Double "Gal-Leg" Spurs. Circa 1925, these double-mounted, double "gal-leg" spurs were made by John Robert McChesney. McChesney is credited with being the originator of the Texas "gal-leg" spur design. He opened the first large-scale shop manufacturing spurs in the Texas style beginning around 1900 in Gainesville, Texas. This pair illustrates McChesney's incredible artistry in ironwork and metals with his extensive use of engraving and two-color mountings of both brass and silver. The spurs are unmarked as were all of McChesney's products manufactured during his lifetime. McChesney believed his quality was his mark. Courtesy of Bruce Bartlett, San Antonio. Consigned Lot. The high bid placed by via mail, fax, the Internet or telephone will be entered as the opening bid for the lot during the live portion of the silent auction.
