Mark Dahl TCAA Card Suit Bit.
Beautiful Mark Dahl bit from the 2000 Traditional Cowboy Arts Association (TCAA) Sale & Exhibition. Marked inside, “Mark / 2000 / TCA” & “Deeth / NV / #293”. The bit is a duplicate of the one he made for the very first TCAA sale, except that first bit featured hearts and diamonds, whereas this example features clubs and spades. A true work of art, with fine engraving inside the cheeks, on the roller cover and rope motif. Triple slobber chains with a central heart spacer.

Mark Dahl (TCAA) California Spurs. Wonderful, inlaid California spurs with Mark Dahl’s exquisite engraved silver inlay on both sides, top and bottom. The impressive 3” rowels are inlaid on each of the 22 points. Dahl also designed and crafted the conchos and three-piece buckles. Additionally, he made the tooled leather spur straps, something he doesn’t often do. This showy pair boasts many unique features such as a barrel style mounting for the swinging strap buttons and sweeping chap guard on the 3” shank.
