Museum Tour of Silver Saddles

(DO NOT MISS THIS !  click on picture above ) 




 
       
Sterling Silver with Gold Accents
 by Don Ellis
 
Seattle, Washington   1941
 

This is a beautiful saddle for a true connoisseur of early parade saddles.  Created by renowned artist Don Ellis in Seattle, Washington, about 1941.  Sterling Silver throughout with Gold accents.  The engraving is terrific and the leather carving is marvelous.  Among the more unusual features are hand braided saddle strings with pineapple knots and leather fringe.  The saddle is a full size 16" seat and the set includes Saddle, Bridle, Tapaderos and Breast Collar. 

This saddle is currently being shown under special request at the Phippen Museum of Western Art in Prescott, Arizona.  The current art show consists of phenomenal oils, bronze sculptures, water colors and photographs illustrating horse themes.

This is the only silver saddle in the show and it is truly spectacular.  This fine example of American Parade Saddles will be available for sale after October 1.  This is your chance to own a true American icon.  Call me now to discuss how this can be yours !!

For "My saddle is in VERY GOOD condition !" and History information   please click here.              

Most of the Parade Saddles that I  sell were created by famous makers Ted Flowers and Bruce Lovins.  They made saddles 50+ years ago using German Silver, Monel, Nickel and Aluminum metals.  This was less expensive and more durable than Sterling, but looks like silver.   I refurbish each rig as completely as possible while maintaining the original parts.   These saddles weigh approximately 75 pounds including serapes, breast collar, etc.   For more information click HERE

 I have restored and sold over 229 of  these Parade saddles ( occasionally I get some exceptional Sterling Silver saddles that are priced right) .  

 If you are searching  for a parade saddle or have one to sell please contact me immediately  All saddles are oiled, tightened and fully polished and refurbished or restored as needed before delivery.  I also do insurance appraisals for a small fee.    Call me if you have any questions.
