Iron, 5 1/2" length. Wide rounded frame with double eye terminals. Long globular prick, distinctive to Viking spurs, as opposed to the sharply pointed types used throughout Europe. The difference likely stemming from the Viking use of the Icelandic pony rather than a larger horse. Ponies are shorter, heavier of build and proportionately more muscular than larger horses like Arabians. The general perception today, as tiny horses for children does not apply to ponies in general. All prick spurs are rare and Viking examples exceedingly so.
