I recently visited a friend with one of the finest collections of CW erea saddlery in private hands. As always I did some photography. Here are a few selections for your viewing pleasure. I will post more as time permits.
1. The Grimsley belonged to Gen. Samuel Beatty. It is all completely original to the owner and in good enough shape to be confused with a reproduction.
2. This is an old Eagle pommel saddle complete with schabraque. Very nice.
3. Jenifer. There is no documentation but by its costruction I have reason to believe this is "likely" Confederate with alterations.
