Up for your consideration is a wonderful vintage leather & wood miniature hand tooled western saddle.Possibly a salesman's sample or a vintage saddle kit? This saddle is full of real looking details. The saddle tree is a beautifully finished wood with a tooled and scallop edged leather seat. The whole saddle is decorated with intricate braiding, tooling, scallop edging and leather conchos with strings. There are metal rings for the cinch harness. See pictures. The underside is lined with a vintage floral print. The ornate stir-ups have a metal frame. This beautiful piece is in nice vintage condition with only a few minor problems. The leather is dry and could use a nice bit of saddle oil. There are a four small darker spots in the leather. See pictures. Cause is unknown, however with oiling these may disappear. And finally a few of the concho strings are broken. But overall for its age, this is an amazing and collectible piece.
