The beautiful sterling silver 4-piece 1859-R is engraved on a Baja buckle set. Over the years Neil has engraved many Baja sets. He clearly enjoys the classic size and shape of this ensemble. I think this engraved Baja ranger set in particular exemplifies Neil's passion for and understanding of 19th century ornamentation on American guns - the flowing scrolls, transitioning seamlessly into leaf-borders and checkering with perfect use of negative space.

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 beautiful, engraved ¾" (19mm) ranger set looks good on any color strap.
