Early August Buermann Hand-Forged Carbon Steel Spurs and Original Leather Straps


Early August Buermann hand-forged carbon steel spurs and original leather straps, circa 1880-1890, The spurs are complete and original, still retaining the spur bells, tooled leather boot covers, chain, wheel spurs, the spurs are in as found condition and have not been cleaned or restored in any way. The spurs have the company’s brand marks “AB” inside a star together with “PAT’D” of each of the spurs. August Buermann immigrated to the US from Germany in 1864 and enlisted with the US Army. He fought in the Civil War and afterward returned to Newark, NJ which was a major manufacturing city and worked for Alexander Barclay’s company. Buermann was a great businessman and bought out Barclay and renamed the company Buermann Manufacturing Co in 1866. Over the next 60 years Buermann’s company produced the most complete catalog of bits and spurs of any company in the US, producing as many as 441 spur styles and 496 bit patterns. Many of these styles were original designs which were patented, as well as many other popular designs that were copied from other makers. In 1926, North and Judd bought the Buermann company, its catalog, factory, and logos. The set is a nice piece of Americana and a nice American history success story. The spurs measure 10"-inches long x 4 1/2"-inches wide x 3"-inches high.
