    A Buck Jones Owned Bohlin Martingale. Fashioned of black leather, with a silver buckle, this martingale tack - complete with curb chain - was owned by Buck Jones. Jones, a star of Western movies in the early twentieth century, was a cowboy prior to his film career, working for the 101 Ranch in Oklahoma. He professionally switched gears, vacating his real-life saddle for a career in the film industry. After being hired as a backup to major Western star Tom Mix, he landed his first starring role in 1920. This martingale was manufactured by the esteemed Edward Bohlin, with Bohlinmade Hollywood California stamped into the reverse of the engraved silver buckle. The silver shows light age wear, leather exhibits some cracking and scuffing.
