Status SOLD
Shoulder Piece Size 11 3/4” long by 2 1/4" wide.
Shoulder Piece Leather In its day this was prime harness leather. In leather years it certainly would have obtained senior citizen status by now.
Shoulder Piece Stitching Artificial sinew hand sewn into hand punched needle holes.
Shoulder Piece Distressed Level High. Surface checking and an overall really old character. Underneath that, the leather is still solid and butter soft.
Shoulder Piece Notables The hand cut and shaped strap slots and the strap guide fit the rein strap snug and the shoulder piece won’t slide on the strap without intentional help. Lined with new suede leather on the bottom.
Strap Style Western Rein
Strap Width 3/4"
Strap Leather Well aged, well used and excellent quality old leather. Soft and supple.
Strap Distressed Level High. A little light checking, some nicks and bruises, a lot of old. A really nice match to the shoulder piece and could still stop a horse.
Strap Notables Original dressed and burnished top edges. Lightly skived to level out the thickness with dressed and burnished bottom edges and slicked smooth on the bottom.
