My Mayhew

Well, the old girl has been dated. My side saddle was built in 1912, on Sept the 9th to be exact. It will be a hundred years old this fall. It is currently with Lillian Chaudhary being restored. She sent me this pic of the manufacturing label.


Everything inside the saddle is good, no real structural damage. The moths just had a good go at the wool flocking. Om Nom Nom...
