The Lone Ranger's Edward H. Bohlin Saddle Ensemble

216_08 copy.jpg

Legendary Bohlin saddle ensemble belonging to the Lone Ranger. From the estate of producer Jack Wrather, this is the saddle seen in most every television episode and film appearance of the Lone Ranger throughout the 1950s. Most often seen being ridden by Clayton Moore, it was also used by John Hart in his portrayal of the masked man, and most correctly belonged to the character of the Lone Ranger rather than an actor playing him. The saddle, bridle and breast collar set are in the style of Bohlin’s San Gabriel model, with only a few variations. The Bohlin shield plate is engraved “L R” and the rear cantle plate is beautifully inscribed “The Lone Ranger.” The seat is 14 1/2" and the cantle 4 1/2", the tapaderos are 22" long. A production-used, classic Bohlin saddle ensemble seen by millions and immortalized on film and television.

A fine pair of engraved Smith & Wesson revolvers, police-used by famed Texas Ranger, U. S. Marshal and career lawman, Clint Peoples. In a letter (included) dated September 11, 1973, Peoples writes:
“[t]he oilfield boom days were considerably rough. Murderers, racketeers, gamblers, hijackers, prostitutes, burglars, and all types of criminals moved into this area, which caused many trying times for those of us in law enforcement. I carried these pistols through the Conroe oil field boom days and have since carried these on many occasions in the Ranger Service. These pistols during this very rough era have saved my life on several occasions.”

Original Tin Sign from the Infamous Lincoln Saloon.

023_07.jpg

This original hand painted outdoor tin sign, complete with side panels and peak, is from the Lincoln Saloon, circa 1881. Directly from the dusty streets of Lincoln, the sign hung outside the Lincoln Saloon, located directly across the street from the Courthouse where Billy the Kid shot and killed Pat Garrett's deputies, James Bel and Robert Ollinger, while escaping from jail. 

Shown in numerous photos taken in the 1880s and over the years, the sign stood sentry over all manner of Wild West escapades. In apparent un-restored condition. Comprised of 7 separate pieces, the “Lincoln Saloon” painted portion measures 25” tall, and 96” long including the side panels; the peak and embossed lower panel, combined with the rest, measure just over 22 feet wide (267”) by 9 feet tall. A well-preserved and historic piece of Old West architecture and history, it is a classic example of, “if this thing could talk…”

Beaded trim along the bottom in black, red and white, and beaded in traditional Apache black and white design at the collar and arms.

Asa (Ace) Daklugie (1872? -1955)

Asa or Ace Daklugie was the son of Juh (pronounced, “Ho”), Chief of the Nednhi Apaches. His mother was Ishton, Geronimo’s favorite sister. He did not know the year of his birth, as “no records were kept at that time.” In his first interview with Eve Ball, he told her, “My father was a good man; he killed lots of White Eyes.” Indeed, Asa Daklugie’s father and his more-famous uncle, were among the fiercest and most revered leaders of a tribe known for its fierceness. He was Geronimo’s favorite nephew, and was chosen by Geronimo himself to be his successor. 

Daklugie served as Geronimo’s interpreter for the S.M. Barrett book, “Geronimo: His Own Story.” Despite this, he often pretended not to speak English. Once Eve Ball earned his trust (the only White Eyes to ever do so), he became the primary interview subject of her seminal work, “Indeh: An Apache Odyssey.” The book is remarkable, as was its interview subject and its author. 
  
Asa did in fact succeed Geronimo as leader of the Mescalero Apache. Though he passed away in 1955, he continues to be one of the most respected Apache Chiefs of all time.

“The result then is Daklugie’s book that you now hold in your hands—not his alone, of course, but largely Daklugie’s. His comments frequently are short tempered, explosive, prideful, belligerent, ironic, curt at times and again loquacious, impatient of white understandings or the lack of them, and yet always honest, often frank, and with nothing whatever subservient about them.”
         -- from the Foreword to, “Indeh: An Apache Odyssey” by Eve Ball (Foreword by Dan L. Thrapp)

The Tanners often visited with Ed Bohlin himself, and anything they needed came directly from Ed, like this custom and unique set. The set comes with 2 coronas; red and white, and yellow and white. Also included are color photocopies of two photographs: Mrs. Tanner riding the saddle in the Rose Parade; and the Tanners with Ed Bohlin and the saddle in front of Ed's shop.

Duff Severe is known throughout the world as a master leather worker. He was a world renowned saddler, especially known for his work in perfecting rodeo contest Bronc Saddles. A majority of World Champions, from Casey Tibbs to the present, have ridden saddles made by Duff Severe of Pendleton, Oregon.

During World War II, Duff served in the Navy and was stationed in the San Francisco Bay area, not far from the saddle shop of Luis Ortega. Duff spent his free time watching Ortega work, then returning to the base to practice what he observed Ortega doing. In 1946, he apprenticed himself to the Hamley Saddle Company, where he spent 10 years learning his trade before going into business with his brother Bill, who had also worked at Hamley. Bill learned to build the trees, and Duff specialized in making the saddle on the tree.

Host and proprietor of the Severe Brothers "Hotel de Cowpunch" since 1948, this friend of the rodeo cowboy hosted hundreds of cowboys, from champions to rookies, at no cost, and occasionally was known to join in some good cowboy music on an old Martin guitar.

In 1982, Duff was one of the 15 original master craftsmen named National Heritage Fellows by the National Endowment for the Arts, marking him as one of "America's Living Treasures." His leather and rawhide art has been exhibited and has traveled with the Smithsonian Institution Exhibition more times than any other artist in his field.

In 1991, Duff was featured in National Geographic Magazine and TV "Explorer" articles on his life and leather achievements.

In 1992, Duff was inducted into the Pendleton Round-Up Hall of Fame. His efforts and influence on behalf of cowboys and rodeo, as well as many years dedication to producing fine trophy saddles, inspired this honor.

Duff Severe passed away in 2004 at the age of 84. He received a National Heritage Award for his unique artistry in making utilitarian and miniature saddles. He and his brother Bill both have saddles in the Smithsonian Institution’s collection; and both passed on the tradition and their skills to their sons and nephews who now run the saddlery.
