This pair of silver inlaid iron stirrups was made in Japan over two hundred years ago. Stirrups (called abumi) were used in Japan as early as the 5th century; the open sides were designed to keep the rider from catching their foot and being dragged. These handsome stirrups are inlaid with silver, bronze, iron, and decorated with gold dragons fiercely grasping flaming pearls.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
