Here is your chance to own a very scarce piece of Southern history! This is an original Confederate saddle that would have been worn by a Rebel officer. This is the pattern known to collectors as a Southern Made McClellan pattern saddle. This is the Southern made saddle that was patterned after the Union made saddle named after George McClellan. It is designed with a rawhide covered seat that has another layer of leather over the top of the rawhide. It uses a brass pommel and cantle shields and strap escutcheons. At one time it would have had one of the "CS" embossed saddle shield emblems but it has been lost to the ages. This saddle has a fine look with the brass furniture. It has the original skirts that are made of a brown leather, which is a typical sign of Confederate construction. It is missing the stirrups but traces of the straps remain. You can see that this one was used heavily but was never abused. This piece came from the museum like collection of the Late John Ashworth. Mr. Ashworth was one of the premiere collectors of Civil War horse equipment. He and his collection is referenced in most every major modern work on Civil War horse equipment. This is a great piece. It is priced less than a CSA belt buckle but is 100 times rarer!
