I bought these stirrups at a sale of items from the Althorp Estate (the Spencer family estate in Northamptonshire & the childhood home of Princess Diana).
They are a traditional English shape and made of steel.
The tread or footplate is hinged so that the arch of the stirrup can open under pressure - a safety feature which stops the rider's foot becoming trapped should they fall.
The underside of the tread is stamped "Oswin", David Oswin was a saddler at Sheep Street, Northampton in the first half of the 19th century.
