VINTAGE N. PORTER SADDLE WITH STUNNING TAPEDEROS:
$2,700

MADE IN THE USA

AWESOME OLD N. PORTER CO.PHOENIX, ARIZ. SADDLE FROM THE ESTATE OF WM.A. HAASS.

THIS WAS BILL'S PERSONAL SADDLE FROM THE TIME HE WAS 14 YRS OLD.

HE WAS A WORKING COWBOY, RODEO COWBOY, SADDLE MAKER, AND SILVER SMITH. WORKING FOR THE LIKES OF N. PORTER & EDWARD BOHLIN,, KEYSTON BROS. AND VISALIA STOCK ANDSADDLE.

ORIGINALLY, HE BOUGHT IT FROM N PORTER AT THE AGE OF 14 WHILE LIVEING AND WORKING ON THE WELDON RANCH IN THE EARLY 1930`S. BUT HE DEFINETLY TRANSFORMED IT INTO A WORK OF ART AFTER RETIREING IN THE 1970`S IT WAS NEVER RIDDEN AFTER THAT AND ALWAYS DSPLAYED IN HIS WESTERN HOME.

I'M NOT SURE OF THE EXACT AGE OF THE SADDLE, BUT I WOULD SAY IT IS A 1930 OR 40'S MODEL. BILL WAS BORN IN THE 1920'S

IN 1985 (SEE PIC OF NAME ADDRESS & DATE MARKED ON BACK JOCKEY) BILL OVERLAID THE TOP SEAT, FENDERS, SKIRT, JOCKIES, SWELLS, GULLET, AND HORN WITH HIS AMAZING HAND CARVED LEATHER WORK.

HERE IS A LIST OF ITEMS BILL HAS ADDED TO THIS SADDLE, TURNING IT INTO A PIECE OF COWBOY ART TO BE PROUDLY DISPLAYED. I WILL START AT THE TOP AND WORK MY WAY DOWN.

*STERLING SILVER HAND ENGRAVED HORNS CAP WITH AN ANTIQUE GOLD COIN DATED 1856

* HAND CARVED FLORAL TOOLING LEATHER OVERLAY ON THE SWELLS AND GULLET. STERLING SILVER CONCHOS (2- 1 1/2 in & 2- 3/4 in) BUCKLES, KEEPERS, AND TIPS ON THE ROPE STRAP & STRINGS.

*LATIGO KEEPER IS TOOLED WITH BRASS SLOT.

* JEWELERS BRONZE (I BELIEVE) ROPE ENLAYED ON THE FRONT OF THE FORK, ABOVE THE GULLET, AND JUST BELOW THE CANTLE BINDING ON THE SEAT. THERE IS ALSO SOME OF THIS ROPE ON THE HORN.

*TOP SEAT IS OVERLAID WITH HAND CARVED FLORAL LEATHER AND HAS 4- 1/2 INCH STERLING SILVER CONCHOS. MAKER MARK "BILL HAASS BAKERSFIELD CA. N. PORTER CO, PHOENIX ARIZ."

* "HAASS" TOOLED INTO BACK OF CANTLE

*BACK JOCKIES ARE OVERLAID LEATHER AND ARE BUCK STITCHED

* SKIRT IS OVERLAID TOOLED LEATHER AND IS BUCK STITCHED AS WELL

*SADDLE STRINGS, ON THE ONSIDE, HAVE SILVER TIPS (MISSING ONE TIP ON JOCKEY STRING)

* FENDERS ARE FULLY TOOLED OVERLAID LEATHER WITH BUCK STITCHING AND BILLS INITIALS "WH" IN STERLING SILVER. STIRRUP HOBLES HAVE STERLING BUCKLES AND KEEPER. LACED STIRRUP LEATHER ADJUSTMENT

* STUNNING 25 INCH EAGLE TAPEDEROS WITH STERLING SILVER HORSE HEAD TIPS & CONCHOS. ONE TAP WAS MADE BY BILL AT A DIFFERENT TIME AFTER AN ILLNESS.. THE TOP OF THE ONSIDE TAP IS NOT LEATHER OVERLAID, AND HAS SILVER TIPS ON THE BLOOD KNOT STRINGS,.AND UPON CLOSE EXAMINATION YOU CAN SEE THAT A DIFFERENT SET OF LEATHER TOOLS WERE USED. OFFSIDE TAP WAS MADE TO MATCH, NO TIPS ON THE BLOOD KNOT STRINGS. THE 3 INCH BELL STIRRUPS HADE TOOLED LEATHER TREADS. THE TAPS ARE ALSO BUCK STITCHED

*ENTIRE SADDLE IS ADORNED WITH HUNDREDS, IF NOT OVER A THOUSAND, SMALLBRASS NAILS OR TACKS EACH PAINSTAKENLY SET

THE SADDLE IS SOUND,AND OVERALL THE LEATHER IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. THERE ARE SOME AREAS THATARE FRAGILE AND COULD USE SOME CONDITIONING

ALTHOUGH I RECOMMEND THIS AS A DISPLAY PIECE, I WILL GIVE SOME OF THE MEASUREMENTS AND LET THE NEW OWNER DETERMINE ITS FUNCTION IN LIFE.

* 13 INCH SEAT

*4 INCH CANTLE

* 14 INCH SWELLS.

NO FRONT OR BACK CINCH... THE LATIGO AND HALF BREED, AS WELL AS ONE BACK BILLET ARE ON THE SADDLE.

WINNING buyer TO PAY SH/INS. ONLY ACTUAL SHIPPING WILL BE PAID. IF PRICE QUOTED ISMORE THAN AMOUNT PAID WHEN SHIPPED, DIFFERENCE WILL BE REFUNDED.

TAPS WILL BE REMOVED AND SAFELY WRAPPED AND SHIPPED WITH SADDLE.

THERE IS SO MUCH TO SAY AND SHOW ABOUT THIS SADDLE THAT I AM SURE I HAVE MISSED SOMETHING SO PLEASE
