    Pommel Saddle Bags with Provision for Percussion Revolver. These Civil War or earlier vintage bags are heavily tooled and quite rare. A holster affixed under the flap of one of the bags fits an 1851 Navy Colt revolver perfectly. The holster is unquestionably authentic to these pommel bags and not an add-on. Under the flap on the opposite side of the bags is a large pocket suitable for maps, documents or the like.

    Black leather bags are supple but a bit dry. There are losses on some of the straps originally intended to affix the bags to the saddle footman loops. A good "Black Rock" leather treatment and some good restoration on a few of the straps would turn these vintage pommel bags into a prize indeed.
