Pair of fighting Bankivas, in silver plated brass, mid-20th century.

Probably a means of political affirmation, from 1850 onwards.
Indeed this very popular leisure activity in FLANDERS, has been thwarted in 1850 by the Grammont law prohibiting cockfights.

They were practiced clandestinely for more than a century thanks to a tolerant local justice towards the thousands of cock breeders who maintained the tradition there. Then the law of 19 November 1963 tightening the ban on fighting provoked such a mobilisation in the North that the parliament restored on 8 July 1964 the authorisation to practice fighting in places with an uninterrupted local tradition, the “Gallodromes”.

The one cock injured on the left flank (18 cm in height, wingspan 18 cm, 797 g) while the winner has lost his artificial metallic spur (21 cm in height, wingspan 14 cm, 686 g). See photos.

Packing material included in the shipping costs.
