artwork printed in the original tones, this catalog
consists of 119 pages, each of which features a detailed

the company, with a heavy emphasis on saddles.

any artist’s interpretation, showing the saddles exactly
as they were manufactured. Printed in the original 7 ˝”

original tones, this catalog consists of 86 pages, each
illustrated with clear photographs of saddles.
