    Saddle Maker's Samples: Lot of Four Boudoir Cabinet Photographs. 5.75" x 9". Silver print, sepia and black and white. Large, heavy mounts with blind-stamped borders, and photographer's name "Varney - 418 J St. (one example 521 J St.), Sacramento, Cal". These excellent sample photographs are attributed to A. A. Van Voorhies & Co. of Sacramento, California. Each of these fine photographs features a different style saddle, each displaying extraordinary hand-tooling. Presumably the style numbers are written in ink at the top of each example and the versos of a couple of the cards have notations in ink providing additional information on particular details. With the exception of some minor scuffing and scattered light stains, the photographs are in fine condition.
