The Western Buckle
History, Art, Culture, FunctionBook - 2003
There is often a vivid story behind each western belt buckle that speaks of the tradition and rich heritage of cowboy life. A cowboy is extremely proud of his buckles and often passes them down to his children or grandchildren. The buckles on these pages are beautifully made, ornate, and detailed. Most are made of sterling silver and solid gold and many are adorned with precious stones, intricate filigree work, and engraving. In the second volume of his three-part series about cowboy gear, David R. Stoecklein reveals the handcrafted beauty of each exquisite piece in his stunning photographs.
