We thought it was a joke, but it's real! This buckle is for a novelty rodeo event--chicken roping! The buckle has a yellow gold central figure of a roper (on foot) throwing a lasso at a chicken! The face reads: "Lane Barretts 1st Annual Chicken Roping", with: "Header", and the date: "2004". We understand they use right small lassos--otherwise it would be really rough on the chicken! The face is ornate; a central copper colored plate is beautifully engraved; the silver and gold letters are all hand cut. The two floral scrolls have blue stone centers and are very tastefully engraved. A silver floral border finishes the 3-1/2" x 4-1/2" face. This buckle was made by Red Bluff buckles, a company that has always been noted for excellence in their work. They hire Native American silversmiths (Navajos); this buckle is signed, right below the Red Bluff hallmark: "Steven Yazzie". Of course, many members of the Yazzie family are noted silversmiths. Gregory Schaff's "American Indian Jewelry I" lists no less than 17 Navajo silversmiths named "Yazzie". This buckle is a salesman's sample buckle, and it is in factory new condition, in the original box. Fits a belt up to 1-5/8" wide. No reserve.
