We have for sale a Pair of Forged Antique Crampons / Ice Cleats
Wonderful find this pair of forged wrought iron Crampons or Ice Cleats depending on what part of the country you are from.
These measure 6 ¼” long, 4 ¾” wide and would have fit a shoe sole 3” wide, that seems small, but people were much small years ago. The triangle rings on the sides would have had leather straps and buckles which would have fastened over your shoe or boot, these have long sense dried and been discarded.
These will make an amazing display item for your resort or cabin.
