In another tribute to this famous waterfowl, Comstock Heritage has created the Tyson Matte Ducks buckle. Flying across a darkened, sterling silver face is a pair of fourteen-karat gold ducks. The convex shape of the face creates depth and makes the ducks seem like they are in motion. It also provides the silversmiths additional surfaces on the top and bottom platforms, which they have used to place hand-engraved scrollwork. To finish the piece, they have placed thick, half-round silver wire along the edges. This is a clever bit of smithery, making the piece look like mounted ducks in a frame. Fits all 1.25-inch belt straps.
America’s oldest western silversmiths, Comstock Heritage was founded in 1886. Since then they have been perfecting the art of taking metal from the earth and shaping it into something beautiful. The Stegman family has owned the business since the 1920s, making everything from badges for law enforcement to ornamentation for saddles. Using this storied history and expertise, the craftsmen at Comstock now specialize in one-of-a-kind custom silver and gold pieces. Everything Comstock produces is made entirely by hand, reflecting respect for the materials and care for the family legacy of Comstock Heritage.
