Frazier) hand tooled black and nickel silver parade saddle with matching headstall, reins, breast collar, full length serape, rump cover, and tapaderos and sports a 'Leo Carrillo Hollywood' name plate. The saddle was displayed in the famous Sharky's Nugget Casino Collection in Reno, NV. The Collection was sold in 2002 and contained many celebrity high end saddles. This is clearly an early Ted Flowers piece, as the pommel/rise is hand engraved and has an unusual flower on the horn. Maker marked "Farm and Home Supply Indianapolis, IN. L.V. Frazier tooled in the seat. Name plate on back of cantle Leo Carrillo Hollywood. It is know that Ted Flowers got together with "L V Frazer" of Indiana. Frazier was a high grade saddle company in the 1930's and 40's. They stopped making saddles in the late 40's about the time Ted Flowers was starting. Note the bit is missing the Bar/Port piece and a few nickel diamonds may need to be replaced (pictured)
