Click on an image to enlarge
This is a classic United States Model 1859 regulation "McClellan" Union army saddle from the Civil War. Is constructed with the rawhide covered seat. The Saddle is constructed using iron and brass hardware including the brass saddle shield. This is the saddle shield that notes that it is the version with the "12 INCH SEAT". It is designed with the leather skirts but you can tell that they were removed long ago. This one has an old girth strap attached to the underside as well, as two wooden stirrups with leather coverings. The girth straps and stirrups are accompanied by the original leather fender skirts. If you notice, there is the small brass manufacturer's plaque. These were required on all military saddles because of the Ordnance Circular of March 24th 1863. This one was made by Condit Prudden of Philadelphia. The books state that they were located 20 Noble Street in Philadelphia. Most of the time when you encounter one of these 1859 McClellan saddle, they are usually heavily damaged. This one is in very fine untouched condition and displays beautifully.
