I have also drastically reduced price to sell ASAP. Buy now or make offer. Thank you...Gorgeous Vintage Olsen Nolte Western Saddle is about 45-47 years old. It is Like New and has not been used since shortly after its purchase. It is in Show Condition as you can see. It is well-made and heavy.Approximately 16 1/2" Seat, Custom Hand Tooled and Stitched, Sterling Silver Conchos, Beautiful Sheep Skin, in Excellent Condition, Like New.Whether you want to use it as it is ready to ride or display it or both, it is Truly Remarkable and a Show Piece. Saddle would be perfect in a Western History Museum as well.I have spoken with Olsen Nolte in California and they have seen the saddle and are very impressed. Especially since we have not used it since shortly after original purchase They even remember our family. Olsen Nolte no longer makes or sell saddles, just tack etc. So, it is and will remain One of a Kind. As you probably know, they have been a Premier California Saddlery and Saddle Maker for Years many years ago in California.They valued it at upwards of $6,500. Opened 1930sAl Nolte was born in Los Angeles but grewup in San Francisco where he learned saddle making while apprenticing at Main& Winchester. Al went to work for Visalia’s Dave Walker but grew restlessdrifting to the Denver based saddleries of J H Wilson & Hermann Heiserbefore returning to the Bay Area where he joined with businessman John E. Olsento form the Olsen-Nolte firm in the 1930s. An instant hit, the partnershipbecame one of the top-ranking saddleries overnight, necessitating an expansion,which ultimately overtaxed Nolte’s capabilities and resulted in his sale toOlsen. Economy Shipping is $100.00 for within the United States only and all extra shipping charges, export charges, insurance and Customs charges etc are the buyers responsibility. I also reserve the right to cancel this sale at any time as I am listing it locally.Sale is final so ask any questions before purchase. I am not a retailer or wholesaler. I am a private party with a beautiful saddle for sale.
