    Western Americana: Vintage Tooled Leather Cowboy Boots with Etched Silver Mounts and Steel Spurs, Probably Circa 1890s. The black leather boots are deeply hand-tooled with a floral motif. They have inside leather boot-straps. The top of the shaft has leather lacing. The heels are of an underslung riding style. The toes are narrow and pointed. Both the toes and the heels are mounted with etched silver mounts. The silver is unmarked, but is either coin silver or sterling silver. The spurs are steel with nickel-silver decorations, including etched shields. The spur straps are also black tooled leather with floral motifs. The rowels are five-pointed stars. The size is unknown, but the boots measure 11" from toe to the top of the heel and 3.5" across the widest part of the sole. The boots stand 13.5" high (including the heel). Weakness and splitting to the shaft above the upper heel and chipping at the upper shaft, else, excellent condition. One spur strap is split at the inner button.
