Set of 2 Harness Leather Cartridge Saddle Cases
Date: 19th Century
PRICE: $ 2,750
Dimensions: H  36 cm W 55 cm D 28 cm

Extremely beautiful aged cases. After all the research we've done we still don't know much about the heritage and its age. Must be rare for sure. My guess is 19th c. Any help is welcome. They are handmade with very thick and heavy harness leather. They have a metal frame for a packsaddle and have early oxidised copper or brass rivets. Inside they have a cartridge made of plywood and with canvas. Because of this my original assumption was it is military. But my researchers can't get any confirmation on that. What I do know is that the packsaddle and the bags do not belong together.
