Stirrup ID, please.

Hello,
I recently purchased what I think is an antique brass stirrup, but to be honest, I'm just not sure. As I mentioned, it's made of brass and weighs about 3 1/2 pounds. It has what I think are dragons along the top of it. I'll attach a couple of pictures. The bottom of the stirrup measures about 6" x 4 3/4", and it's about 6 1/2" tall.

Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Spanish, Portuguese influence?

I've seen these in the past described as 'Chinese' but I'm no expert on antique stirrups. Dragons sounds right, though.
And they might be bronze rather than brass.

Yes, I myself also have heard them described as "Chinese or Mongolian".

They look very similar to the ones from this webpage: Mongolian Stirrups from the collection of Nigel Tudor, Metalsmith Tudor Ironworks
