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.
