    Description

    Mother Hubbard Style Vintage Saddle. Though not as easily recognized as the classic Western cowboy saddle, the Mother Hubbard style saddle was used extensively by Texas cowboys after 1866. This beautiful example is lightly adorned with double-rule embossing and small tooled rosettes with four pewter ornaments at each corner of the skirt. Large wooden stirrups are suspended from modestly adorned fenders and four leather conchos with tassels are arranged along the side of the skirt. Though the saddle's maker is unknown, the quality of craftsmanship is evident in the material and construction of this simple, yet elegant saddle. The condition is superb with only honest wear, a small portion of one of the pewter ornaments missing and a short split on the left stirrup.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
