Item Description

Just being near this handcrafted beauty...there's a feeling to it. Absolutely stunning tooled leather, thick wooden stirrups, sassy leather tassles: this saddle is GORGEOUS. 

After sitting in a Tumalo barn for many years before being donated to the auction, it does have a bit of dust and dirt here and there, but even just a couple minutes with some leather oil transformed this piece. Imagine what some real TLC could do! 

A review online of similar pieces shows a wide array of values. We price this legit work of art on the modest end of the scale, and encourage you to envision placing this saddle anywhere you'd consider for a sculpture or other valuable cultural piece. 

It is a genuine piece of American history and we hope you'll give it a new lease on life for the museum status it deserves. 

Comes with two pieces of tackle and two stands.
