Shoulder Piece Size 16" long by 2 1/8".
Shoulder Piece Leather Floppy soft and supple harness leather. Formally part of an old breast collar. Very high quality leather with no checking, road rash, or cosmetic issues.
Shoulder Piece Stitching Artificial sinew hand sewn into the original needle holes.
Shoulder Piece Distressed Level Medium/high. Very old but rock solid leather looking forward to a new career in the music field. The original Flower and Basketweave tooling is still visible although the fine details have been worn smooth from years of previous use. Close up pics sent on request.
Shoulder Piece Notables Lined on the bottom with new suede leather. Since the shoulder piece does not slide on the strap to adjust position, I’ll need an additional measurement so that I can properly locate it for you. If you’re not honed into a specific strap length yet, this one might not be a good choice.
Strap Style Western Rein
Strap Width 5/8"
Strap Leather Solid, thick, and butter soft top shelf harness leather.. Lightly skived with hand dressed and burnished edges and slicked smooth on the bottom. Really nice quality.
Strap Distressed Level Medium/high with an age darkened vintage character.
Strap Notables A few inches on each were skived thin enough to make a neat and flexible connection to the shoulder piece and securely fastened with 2 rows of double stitched artificial sinew. Includes a full setup for length and attachment points.
