14.5" Highback Western Antique Saddle, Handcarved 1910? Vintage, Old, Nice For Sale

This is a nice old high back saddle that I am listing for display. It has a solid horn and tree, and the body of the leather is great, soft and without substantial cracking.

It hasan unusual and very attractive flower pattern obviously hand tooled. It has been refleeced recently, and has new latigo strings. The reason I am saying it is a display is that the stirrup leathers, although soft and pliable, have a myriad of holes punched into them, some of which have stretched and are oversized. The buckle currently is a single prong type, although the leathers were once set for double prongs, thus adding to the number of holes you see. These leathers look to have been replaced at some time earlier, as you can see the very nice splicing done about one half the way down the fender.

The horn has a small area of leather missing to the outside edge of the front. It is, nonetheless, solid and tight, and the leather is still on solidly. The glare you see in the photos is due to the leather conditioner not being quite fully absorbed. This saddle was stacked with a number of others when I purchased it, and the skirts were folded under....they are coming back OK, just need a little more time, as they are soft enough, and not at all stiff.

The gullet, as is true with so many of these early saddles, is narrower, and measures 5 inches. This saddle will make a lovely Old West display item, or with a very little work, could be very useful to ride in again.
