Table of Contents
American cowboys loved the flash of silver at their heels and on their horses. Between 1850 and 1970 western craftsmen responded to the cowboys' needs by creating intricately engraved silver bits and spurs that are avidly collected today.
This handy reference book covers 100 makers and some saddleries in seven western states and the Northeast. Included for each maker are time lines and detailed photographs of their marks and engraving style as well as indications of the current collectibility, relative value and scarcity of their pieces.
This pocket guide is based on the more comprehensive book, Bit and Spur Makers in the Vaquero Tradition: A Historical Perspective which has 650 stunning color photographs of bit and spur makers from more than 45 collections. It has an extensive index and bibliography as well as complete biographies of more than 100 makers.
