Vintage Antique Old Western Saddle (817) High Back:
This is an old 15" high back western saddle. I believe the saddle was kept in service a long time because it has rather new sheep skin lining and 5 of the 6 tie strings have been replaced with new ones. the conchos on the saddle are unique in that they are leather with the cowhide on them. These are origional to the saddle and old. One is missing (see photo). The leather that coils around the cowboys lariat rope is torn so that it cannot loop over the horn any longer, and the leather that capped the horn is missing. I personally find the metal horn more interesting than the leather cap would have been. (seehorn photo)
The high back cantel measures 4 1/2" high from the saddle skirt to thetop. There is no tooling on the saddle except for a thin trim of basket weave on the fenders. (see photo). There is no makers mark on the saddle.
This saddle is a very nice display piece, and has recently been professionally cleaned and conditioned with museum quality products.
