This collection (lots 170 - 174) of spectacular Ortega material was the property of W.W. “Bill" Hulsey, an important Oklahoma businessman and collector, and former board member of the Cowboy Hall of Fame (National Cowboy and Western Heritage Center) in Oklahoma City. He was a close friend of Luis Ortega, and received only his finest work. The marked pieces have the family “WH" brand on them.

An original Ortega design and one of the scarcest of his work, this unique heart shaped martingale is very desirable. All natural rawhide with round and flat braiding and extensive red accents along with tea stained details. Heart is 6" across and 6" tall. A truly impressive piece of Luis's artistry. Unused condition.
