The story of a very unique Ted Flower's Saddle
The gun belt and the Crockett Spurs originally
belonged to A.E. McCully a longtime lawman
from Merced, California. A.E. McCully was a very
interesting man who owned a custom sterling Ted
Flower's set that he used in the Rose Bowl Parade.
You can read more about A.E. McCully by
A.E. McCully worked for the Merced City Police
for about 25 years. He sent one of his gun belts
to Ted Flowers to have it decorated to match his
saddle. So the leather belt itself was not made by
Ted Flowers... however all the silver work on the
belt was done by Ted Flowers. If you look closely
you can see the signature Ted Flower's "horn
flower" on each pocket of the holster. This same
flower is engraved on many Ted Flower's saddles
with a solid metal horn.
The spurs are Crockett spurs and have big rowels
that jingle! Over the years I have never come
across another Ted Flower's holster! So this is a
unique piece. PSA acquired the spurs and holster
from Mr. McCully's son when he was selling his
Dad's equipment. Last we heard his sterling saddle
was still being used in the Rose Bowl parade!
The guns shown are nickel plated movie prop
guns. The silver guns with the ivory like grips are
very appropriate for a vintage parade saddle. The
gun barrel spins and you can load the fake bullets
--- but don't worry... they do not fire!
