Antique French Stirrup

An old French stirrup
This stirrup is made of steel, there is a rectangular suspension loop on the top of the arch.
The tread or footplate is made of bars of steel forged into shape. I believe there would once have been bars or a cage over the front of the stirrup.
Such stirrups were used both by the French military and by the cowherds of the Camargue.

Dimensions : Width 5½" (14cm), height 5½" (14cm), length of tread 6½" (16.5cm)
