Saddle Holsters

In his painting entitled “Walker and wife”, Alfred Jacob Miller depicts a set of saddle holsters with bear hide flaps over the pommel of Joseph R. Walker’s saddle.  The following photos depict my re-creation of these holsters.  A special “Thank you” goes to my good friend, Ron Parks for giving me the bear hide.

I still need to put the tie downs on the flaps and give the leather a complete coat of oil.  These will make a great prop in my camp as well as good travel cases for my pistols to and from rendezvous.
