Very Unique Sidesaddle

I found this antique Western Sidesaddle (I believe it to be of a Mexican or South American orgin) on Ebay.

Wonderful detail and craftsmanship..

..not to mention the silver..

..and here is the rest of the set. This could almost be used in a parade class for Saddlebreds!

That is AWESOME looking. Though it looks slightly damaged, like the heads have been bent or something. Still though...

I lust after a Peruvian style sidesaddle. Not terribly practical for showing, but WOW.

I am afraid to ask how much a saddle like that retails for... WOW

Sorry that I did not include that Hosanna. The starting bid was just under $1000. but I did not follow it to find out what it actually sold for...or IF it sold.

That is very pretty. I wonder what shape the leather is in. Hard to tell from the photo.

OH WOW If I had seen that I probably would have at least followed it. It is incredible!
