Phillip Fredholm was Edward H Bohlin’s premier craftsman, and one of the finest silversmiths of the Hollywood Cowboy era. Fredholm was a master tool and dye maker who is credited with making the top-of-the-line dyes for Bohlin’s buckles and conchos in the late 1920s and 1930s. Known to have created Bohlin’s famous Mission saddle, which depicted California’s various historical missions in solid silver and hand chased in bold relief. Fred also worked for the legendary Mike Morales when he moved from Portland to Los Angeles and set up his shop at 2213 Sunset Blvd. After Morales’ death Fred opened his own shop where he created some of his finest work including many prize-winning silver saddles.
