Despite the name, no metal as pedestrian as copper was used to make this buckle. Only sterling silver and gold went into this masterpiece. In the center is a cowboy trying to tame a bucking bronco, every muscle of man and beast straining in the scene. Surrounding them on all sides are the loops and swirls of floral scrollwork, made from sterling silver and gold, both rose and yellow. The rest of the face is darkened to create dimension and depth, making it seem as if horse and rider are floating in space. Fits all 1.5-inch belt straps.
America’s oldest western silversmiths, Comstock Heritage was founded in 1886. Since then they have been perfecting the art of taking metal from the earth and shaping it into something beautiful. The Stegman family has owned the business since the 1920s, making everything from badges for law enforcement to ornamentation for saddles. Using this storied history and expertise, the craftsmen at Comstock now specialize in one-of-a-kind custom silver and gold pieces. Everything Comstock produces is made entirely by hand, reflecting respect for the materials and care for the family legacy of Comstock Heritage.
