Fine Antique 19th C. Folk Art rawhide laced wooden saddle tree / book shelf from South of the Border, down Mexico way. This is the best one I have owned, and the best one I have seen of this type that is not silver embellished. It appears to be in unused condition, and never fitted with leather for a saddle. It is very interestingly constructed by using wooden pegs and rawhide lacing's to hold it together. This suggests that it is an early piece, and dates to the late 19th century; not only because of the construction method, but also due to the dark aged patina overall. This piece is in 100% original and complete untouched patina that collectors love to see. Note that at the base of the horn where it meets the frame, there is only one wedge fitted in this 90 degree angle. The one side has a wedge with a wooden peg affixing it to the frame. The other side does not have this wedge, nor is there an indication that there was ever a hole for the wooden peg. Thus, it was made this way; perhaps uncompleted, perhaps intended that way. In any case, it is completely original. There are 2 iron nails that along with the rawhide lacing, help hold the top of the saddle back on, that appear to be hand made. Perfect as a book rack, Western, Western Americana, Cowboy, Vaquero, Old West, Horseman, Horse Trapping, Equestrian, saddle, saddle tree display; or as a decorating / Folk Art conversation piece; or use as a book stand, placing the corner of the books in the middle channel. Weight is estimated at 7 lbs.
