This is an outstanding circa 1940-1950’s Ted Flowers Saddlery Silver Parade Martingale in very high grade. Ted Flowers was one of the more prolific parade saddle makers of the 1930-1950’s with some of his customers being Roy Rogers and Gene Autrey amongst other famous cowboys. Early examples from the 1930-1940’s were done on L.V. Frazier Farm and Home Supply Indianapolis, IN. tooled saddles with his silver work adorned but later in the circa 1940-1950’s Ted Flowers started producing his own saddles, such as this amazing piece. This leather and silver martingale matches the previous lot, the fully silver parade saddle, with original silver work, mostly nickel silver with diamond shaped scales each having hand tooled finishes. The silversmithing, silver work is truly exception. From a Montana Cowboy collection and rarely seen for sale. Overall in very good condition for its age with no major damage and nice presentation. The overall measurements of this martingale are 28" x 21" x 12".
