This is a pair of vintage dark brown wooly sheep chaps. The leather belt is stamped by the maker: âeoeAl Furstnow - Miles City, Montâe within a rectangle. They have been used and worn, we found them in an old estate in San Antonio. They measure 35 inches long from the top of the tooled leather belt. The waist is 36 inches around measuring to the center hole on the belt and the upper leg is 13 ½ inches wide at the front. These are a full chap that the leg goes completely into. The inside front edges of leather are scalloped all the way down. The front is long wooly sheep hair (some 7 inches long) and the back is a smooth heavy leather with canvas pockets at the sides. These chaps are shedding and have lost some of their hair. T is hair loss on one leg (see photos), probably due to improper storage in a hot climate. This pair is well worth restoring. These are a great old vintage western collectable hand crafted by notable maker Al Furstnow, who started his saddle shop business in 1884. Do not miss this outstanding pair of cowboy chaps. These will be a treasured addition to any collection or great for your western decor. Shipping weight approximately 8 pounds. Thanks for looking and Good Luck Bidding!
