This is a very nice fully engraved silver mounted bit, in very good condition, marked A. TIETJEN. No damage or repairs. Estimated to have been made in the 80s. Al Tietjen (1929-2009). Tietjen grew up on a ranch and from his early years, he possessed that inherent interest in cowboy gear. But when he and Elmer Miller decided to open a custom bit and spur shop in San Francisco, California, he embarked on a brand new career. "I was just a pup then," he recalls. "I didn’t know a thing about making bits and spurs—I just decided to look at what other people were doing, and do it. In 1954, Tietjen married, and he continued to tinker with the western gear that felt comfortable in his hands. He says, "because making bits and spurs alone at that time created a starvation diet. I had to work someplace else, too, to put beans on the table." He made bits and spurs in his spare time. Tietjen worked making bits and spurs for a limited clientele. Tietjen bits have been owned and used with pride by horsemen for many years.
