Inlaid with brass and silver, this extraordinary pair of Japanese bronze stirrups, known as Abumi, were crafted in the Edo period (1603-1868) for use on a Samurai's horse. Each is wonderfully detailed with inlaid silver scrollwork and adorned with fearsome dragons covered with scales and grasping flaming pearls, a motif symbolizing the pursuit of power and strength. The interiors are of black lacquer with expected wear consistent with age and use.

“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.”
