Sterling Silver Filigree Inlaid Stylized High Spade Calif Bit Tapia Styl Jingler For Sale

Upfor offer is a stunningSterling Silver inlaid, overlaid high spadeCalifornia bit. Shown in the pictures a bit similar to this that sold in Jan. 2007 at High Noon. It's shown on pg 19 of their catalog. This bit I'm, sellingisn't from the 1880's. The bit from High Noon was coin silver, this bit is made of Sterling Silver, which makes it more modern in my opinion. I'm guessing more contemporary,probably from one of the modern makers like, E.G. Grilliva, E. Garcia or Garcia It's a beautiful stylized bit with 23 rivited silver spots on each cheek and it has some dings, dents &file marks. It has a 5 1/4" mouth piece &from the slobber bar to the top of the spade, it's 10 1/2". It has 7 iron jingle bobs on the lip bar. It's reallystriking with the stylized filigree work.The design & style of thisbit reminds me of a Tapia.I am sure this bit is not comprable to the bit that was sold atHigh Noon, I only use that bit for similarity of style.Check out our other old west and cowboy related items such asVisalia, Keyston Bros, Sterling Silver Buckles, Conchos, spurs & other western items.
