Pair of Silver Plated Levee Spurs by Thomas of St.James St.

These spurs are in their original velvet lined case.
The lid of the case is lined in blue silk and stamped "Thomas & Son, 36 St James' St., London"
Robert Thomas was a bootmaker, born in 1817, he appears at this address in various directories around 1837.

The spurs are silver plated with steel inserts which would fit into "boxes" in the heel of the boot.
The arms and straight necks of the spurs are cast with tudor roses.
This is likely to be a regimental pattern but I have not identified the regiment concerned.
The rowels are similarly decorated and there is a scallop shell at the base of each spur neck.
The steel parts of the spurs are stamped "Thomas, 36 St James St, London".
The casting is crisp and both spurs are in very good condition.
The leather covering the case is somewhat rubbed on its lower edges.

Very similar spurs can be seen in Charles de Lacy Lacy's 1902 book "The History of the Spur"

Internal width 6.2cm (approx 2⅜"), neck 5.2cm (2"), rowel 2.5cm (1")
