Custom, one-of-a-kind filigreed spurs by Edward H. Bohlin. A stunning achievement constructed of 10k, 14k, 18k and 22k gold, along with sterling silver. Maker marked, “Bohlinmade / Hollywood / Calif.” Fully-mounted sterling silver blanks with rose gold filigreed floral pattern heelbands, raised rose gold floral stylized straight shank, and yellow gold rope edge. 2-piece, 2 1/8”, 20-point rowels with gold point inlays and 1-inch gold Bohlin Indian Head rowel covers. The spur “straps” are solid silver dove wings, with rose gold filigreed centers, and yellow gold flowers with inset rubies all around. Yellow gold rope edges on the straps, which are attached to swinging buttons with 1 1/2” rose gold Bohlin Indian Head conchos.
Neither subtle nor understated, they are quintessentially Bohlin.
