In honor of the 175th anniversary of the fall of the Alamo (March 6, 1836), I am currently creating and designing a Commemorative Alamo Bowie piece.
At this stage, I have the John D Dennehy Commemorative Alamo Bowie knife done for you to see. Below that photo is a draft of the overall finished piece. I will add photos as the hand carved leatherwork piece begins. The knife is 16.5" overall with an 11" blade.
The carving has started. The Alamo will be textured and there will be western floral design on the corners. There will also be the brass plate honoring those that lost their lives at the Alamo and the late Dan Dennehy. Each piece will be numbered, both on the leather piece and the knife. THERE WILL ONLY BE 10 MADE and there are only 8 left.
This piece will be priced at $1200.00. This is a very large, time consuming and detailed piece of history. It will have extensive hand carved leather work that will take many many hours of hand carved detail.
There will ONLY be 10 made and they each will be numbered in order of purchase.
Each piece will also come with a Certificate of Authenticity and will be numbered 1 - 10.
This item is approximately 90-120 days out.
This is a rough draft of the Alamo Bowie Commemorative Piece. The 17" Bowie knife will be attached to a piece of leather approximately 22" in width mounted onto a wooden backing.
The Alamo scene (minus the people) will be hand carved into the leather. There will also be decorative tooling of the leather around the border.
A brass plate will be placed in the upper left hand corner with the informatiom about the piece. Each work of art will be numbered.
Because of the extensive work involved, we are limiting this piece to only 10. Each piece will take about 4 months.
To reserve your Alamo Bowie Commemorative piece a $400.00 deposit will be required. When work is half completed, another $400.00 payment will be requested. When the product is finished, the remaining $400.00 payment will be requested plus shipping charges. We will ship Priority mail with insurance, unless you have other preferences. This piece needs a box over 24" x 16" x 5" .
Checks are gladly accepted.
