attention please to all interested ers-
I have been asked by many if this is marked at all anywhere on the leather, it is not, but I was contaced by Rob Schaezlein personally who verified that the silverwas indeed made by his grandfather, decades ago.
I included some of the email that was sent to me by him,
Unless it's marked Visalia somewhere on the leather (or concho backs which you can't see), it probably isn't. Visalia marked just about everything. However, from the photos, I'll vouch for the silver. It looks like a set we (my grandfather) made. If the leather were marked Visalia, it would have been made pre-1937, as 1936 is the last year we did work for them. Without a maker's mark like Visalia Stock Saddle Company stamp, it's hard to say who made it or when. It's a nice piece, andyou can use R. Schaezlein & Son as the maker of the silver if you like.
Rob Schaezlein- to everyone who has contacted me on this, and I truly hope whoever wins this breastcollar, treasures it as a classic collectors piece and appreciates the true history and silver artwork it so proudly displays....This breast collar is a real masterpiece, andsomething you will probley never see again in beauty and quality.
