Estate fresh, this absolutely beautiful and historic bolo slide is made from Sterling silver and yellow gold by the Visalia Stock Saddle Company out of San Francisco.  Founded in 1870 the Visalia Stock and Saddle Company became the premier saddle maker of the era and true cowboys widely believed  "If you don't ride a Visalia, then you ain't a real cowboy!"  This piece is an incredibly preserved example of a bolo slide made for the historic equestrian group, The Rancheros Visitadores (RV). The California based RV remain an important equestrian social group who embark on an annual 60 mile horseback trek in the Santa Barbara backcountry .  The slide has an amazingly detailed western cowboy atop a rearing horse. It measures roughly 1-3/4" L x 1-1/4" wide and features a rope border with hand engraved textured background.  These pieces rarely come available so act now this won't last! The piece likely dates to the 30's. Pictures are the description and this is the exact piece you will add to your RV collection! Thanks
