Black and Gold Bolster with Montana Coyote
Panning for gold? Here you have it, all wrapped up with deep velvety black. . .add some Montana Coyote fur, luxurious filigree overlay and you’ll be howlin’ at the moon!
This pillow is made from an embossed black cowhide leather center panel, with an underlay of ivory deerskin. The center panel is hand carved to create a cut out pattern that enhances the floral design in the embossed leather. This panel then creates an overlay, which we back with a contrasting color of leather to make the pattern “pop”. The center panel is embellished with flanking sheepskin strips, which are garment-sewn, and finished with hand-rolled piping. The conchos are hand-cast antiqued brass, and are set by hand. The fur panels are Montana Coyote, cut from the same hide and mirror-imaged to emphasize the pattern inherent in the pelt. We have hand cut and twisted the 8″ leather fringe, and added it to both sides of the pillow for the perfect finishing touch. The backside of the pillow is crafted from black leather with overlapping panels for easy access to the fiber pillow insert. The back panels are closed securely with two antiqued brass conchos and deerskin lacing. The overall dimensions of this pillow are 18″w X 12″h, plus 8″ of fringe on each side. Our signature brand is at the lower right corner on the back of the pillow.

From childhood, we are taught to not have a lot of love for the coyote. I mean, look at the ways Wyle E. Coyote tried to torture the poor Roadrunner. Personally, I always felt great satisfaction when an Acme anvil fell on his head. Call it cartoon karma, because the guy had it coming! Yet the coyote is an important part of many Native American tales, and Stargazer Mercantile even offers some products that feature beautiful, Montana and Colorado coyote fur, so I figure Mr. Coyote merits his own blog post.
