Pistol Pete Desktop Sculpture
ICON Artworks is proud to pay tribute to the beloved Oklahoma State University mascot with our Officially Licensed PISTOL PETE Desktop Sculpture!
Cowboy, U.S. Marshal, gun-slinger, and blacksmith, Frank “Pistol Pete” Eaton served as the inspiration for Oklahoma State's mascot. Approached in 1923 by a group of Oklahoma A&M students after leading Stillwater’s Armistice Day Parade, Eaton, a rugged cowboy serving at the time as the sheriff in the nearby town of Perkins, Oklahoma, agreed to be represented as the mascot. It was not until 1958, however, that the mascot was made official and not until 1984 that the Pistol Pete caricature became a licensed symbol of OSU.
A perfect gift for students, alumni, faculty, and fans alike! GO POKES!!

ICON Artworks Cast Pewter is handcrafted by our team of skilled artisans with an antique finish in the highest quality, lead-free Fine Pewter alloy used for sculpture. After platinum, gold, and silver, pewter is the fourth-most-precious metal in the world. Pewter has been used since the Bronze Age because of its lustrous silver finish, its malleability, durability and its ability to capture incredibly fine detail. Pewter does not rust or deteriorate and can be enjoyed for generations.
