Included in this lot is a pair of western leather rifle saddle scabbards, originating from the early 1900's. The rifle scabbards display thick leather construction. The scabbards are designed to attach to the sides of saddles and hold a rifle. The first of the saddle scabbards is a Black Sheep Brand 2300-24. The rifle has a second layer along the bottom line to protect the trigger and workings of the rifle. There is a tab with a brass snap at the back of the scabbard and four slots cut on each side to use for straps. The rifle scabbard is open at the barrel end to allow for a variety of longer barrels. The leather measures 34" long and 8 1/2" wide at the stock end. The second rifle scabbard is unmarked. The scabbard measures 35" long and 8 1/2" wide at the stock end. The leather on this scabbard is very thick. This scabbard has two sets of leather lashing to attach to the saddle. Both of the pieces shows good condition overall, with some wear due to age.
