Fine 19th C. Chinese Sharkskin Horse Saddle
|( ID: c292 )|
A very fine 19th C. or earlier Chinese saddle mounted in sharkskin and chiseled brass with matching stirrups. This example is quite rare in that it is marked underneath with Chinese caligraphy "Flying Dragon", and this corresponds directly with the chiseled decoration around the side of the saddle, which shows flying dragons. the raised bumps of brass being the dragon heads and the bodies chiseled flat. Wonderful and fine example. We can do free international shipping by USPS Express mail.
