Created in the mid-1980s by then-owner of the Bohlin Company, Danny Lang, this striking and impressive pair of one-of-a-kind, double-mounted, intricately engraved parade spurs overlaid in sterling and three-color 18K gold, was designed to celebrate the 1986 Texas Sesquicentennial. The pair has the trademark cookie-cutter rowels inset with engraved sterling washers, jinglebobs secured by silver spots, and four upturned buttons mounted with gold hearts. The off-side features raised gold longhorns and trumpets “TEXAS” down the shank, while the front is adorned with a bold and golden, heavy gauge 5-pointed star, the Sesquicentennial dates of “1836-1986” and Danny Lang’s “DL” initials. The fully floral tooled, laced and lined black two-piece spur straps are decorated with sterling stars and feature 3-piece engraved silver buckle sets. Outstanding, unused condition.
