Rex SchnitgerBorn:1877 Died:1947 Maker's Mark:
"RANGE LAND CO", most work Unmarked
Rex Schnitger was born in Cheyenne, Wyoming and learned bit and spur making from Henry “Dutch” Thar. Rex opened a store where he sold western items as well as bits and spurs. He sold his own bits and spurs in his store as well as selling some through the Hamley catalog. Rex would move to Califoria to do work in the Bohlin shop in the 20’s as well. Schnitger did not mark his work, though a partnership known as the Range Land Company did mark pieces, though they are considered rare. His pieces can be identified typically by a stripe pattern on the heelband or cheek and a distinctive Wyoming style including frequent use of silver buttons as decorative elements.
