Japanese pair of Abumi samurai stirrups in wrought iron with ornate inlays of silver and gold, three-leaf family crest on front, delicate calligraphy and cloud motif. The pair has red and black lacquered wood inlays for the feet on the inside. The pair was made during the Edo period in the 18th century, very likely during the 1780's, for a nobleman of the Japanese feudal society.
The pair has age-appropriate patina and wear, with slight age crack in one of the lacquered wood inlays and some losses to the silver and gold inlay. Marks in calligraphy on front and bottom.
