|Shoulder Piece Notables
|The curved shape and rounded ends were hand cut and shaped and the edges were dressed and burnished the full perimeter. The curve favors the left shoulder of a right handed player. The matching strap guide keeps the rein strap centered on the shoulder piece. New suede leather lining on the bottom.
|Slightly under 1/2".
|Age darkened top shelf harness leather. Broken in very soft and supple.
|Strap Distressed Level
|Medium with a noticeably color shaded vintage character and some shallow checking. I skived the thickness down to a heavy 1/8” then dressed and burnished top and bottom edges and slicked the bottom smooth.
