Originally offered in the 1970s at the C.M. Russell Museum, and only to museum members, the Trigg Silver Series consists of 10 finely made and highly detailed sculptures in sterling silver created from the original collection that is now held in the museum’s permanent collection. Limited to just 100 editions (this set is No. 16), the set features a nice grouping of Russell subjects, including buffalo, grizzly bears, bighorn sheep, a pair of mule deer, a seated Native American figure and a turkey, among others.

The Trigg Family—Albert and Margaret, and their daughter Josephine—arrived in Great Falls, Montana, around the same time as the Russells. The two families became close friends and eventually neighbors. The Trigg Collection, bequeathed to the museum by Josephine Trigg in memory of her parents and Russell, is a remarkable portion of the overall museum collection.
