"J J Estrada" engraved in silverwork
J.J. Estrada was born in Mexico and later immigrated to the US where he worked as a blacksmith and bit and spur maker in Los Angeles and San Luis Obispo. He was married and had two sons, Juan and Francisco. Francisco would apprentice with J.J. and become a bit and spur maker in his own right later. J.J. Estrada marked his pieces with an engraved script on the outside of the bit, he typically worked with inlay silver and had a style that was completely different from his son. These pieces are quite rare and hard to find.
