4-Piece Ranger Belt Buckle Set "1854-R"
Hand Engraved Solid Sterling Silver Sycamore

Hand Engraved Sterling Silver Ranger Belt Buckle Set 'Americana Collection 1854-R'

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


The sterling silver 4-piece 1854-R engraved on a Sycamore buckle set from Neil's Sedona Rangers has an unusual patina. Neil is always experimenting, and enjoys finding ways to add character and personality to his pieces using different patinas.

Although there are several, quite different design elements on this ranger set, as a whole they all work nicely together. The crossing banners on the tip and the sides of the keepers (see angled close-up) resemble the lay-out of the scrolls on the buckle. The checkering pattern on all pieces of this buckle set (also angled close-up) ties the ensemble together. One of the things Neil is enjoying about the Americana Collection project is studying borders. There seems to be no end to the possibilities with borders and edging.

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 beautifully engraved ¾" (19mm) ranger set looks best on one of Neil's custom ranger straps in any color, although, it is especially striking on black.
