Featured in this lot is a P.M. Kelly silver mounted steel spur pair, circa 1950s. The spurs are made with a professionally crafted steel and silver mounted construction. The spurs show six rowels that show a silver mounted and floral decoration along the outside of the of the spur frame. The spurs include spur straps that are tooled with basket woven decoration and are marked on the spur frame 'KELLY.' Pascal Kelly learned to make bits and spurs from a blacksmith in town as a way to make money for a trip to the 1904 World’s Fair from his small town in Texas. His skill at blacksmith work and bit and spur making led him to open his own shop with his brother. Eventually, he would have a short lived partnership with Clyde Parker, as well. Kelly had an outstanding ability to make or repair almost anything. He eventually found work with J.R. McChesney’s shop for a period of time. Eventually Kelly started his own business and produced an incredibly wide range of designs for both bits and spurs. The condition of this pair of cowboy spurs shows some patina and oxidation to the spurs due to age and exposure. The measurements of this pair of spurs are 8 3/4" x 4 1/4" x 2 1/2". The collective weight of this pair of spurs is 1 lb. 6 oz.*
