August Buermann

Spur Maker
New Jersey

One of the earliest (1868) and most innovative spur makers, August Buermann was both a leader and a follower, who manufactured 443 different spur designs at his peak of popularity. Though headquartered in New Jersey, "AB" manufactured California, Mexican and Texas spurs, employing many of the finest craftsmen from those regions. Buermann sold strictly to jobbers and wholesalers marking his spurs with a 5-pointed star, over stamped with B on A, "Hand Forged Steel" and "Patent.” His inventive genius resulted in many registered patents as well as Hercules Bronze and Star Steel Silver. Though the August Buermann Manufacturing Company was absorbed by North & Judd in 1926, its influence can be seen in bit and spur collections from coast to coast.
