4-Piece Ranger Belt Buckle Set "1852-R"
Hand Engraved Solid Sterling Silver Sycamore

Hand Engraved Sterling Silver Ranger Belt Buckle Set 'Americana Collection 1852-R'

Close-Up of Belt Buckle Set | Angled Close-Up of Belt Buckle Set


The 1852-R sterling silver 4-piece ranger buckle set is engraved on a Sycamore set from Neil's Sedona Rangers. It depicts the head of a retriever on the buckle, and a bunny hiding in the scrolls on the tip. Putting the dog at the center of the scroll was a common practice in the 1800s. It isn't seen very often in today's engraving styles.

The engraved scrolls are simple, yet strong, leaving a fair amount of open space. A carved zig-zag border on the edge of the buckle and tip, and on part of the keepers (see angled close-up) tie the pieces together. The diagonal band across the keepers is a powerful design element, and brings the eye back to the center.

Ever pursuing new limits and perspectives on buckle-making, Neil's new Americana Collection is the height of craftsmanship and artistry. These belt buckles are inspired by ornamentation on 19th century American guns, which were mostly engraved by German and Austrian immigrant craftsmen. Among them, engraving by German immigrant LD Nimschke is the most well-known and well-documented, and as such, Neil has found much inspiration perusing the book of "smoke-prints" of Nimschke's work. Pieces in the Americana Collection are simply numbered from 1851 - to as close to 1900 as Neil gets before his body gives out. His goal is to engrave 50 pieces for this collection.

This sweet ¾" (19mm) ranger set looks best on one of Neil's custom ranger straps, and is an attractive ensemble in any color.
