EXTREMELY RARE AND DESIRABLE PAIR OF POMMEL HOLSTERS MADE FOR THE COLT WALKER REVOLVER BY J.C. SHACKLEFORD AND COMPANY CINCINNATI OHIO IN 1847.

SN NSN. These holsters are one of only 2-pair of this type holster known to collectors, the other pair being in the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City. Holsters are made from heavy harness leather with brass toe caps. Holsters have patent leather hoods with brown leather lining and yellow piping, designating Cavalry use. Holsters have a makers mark stamped on the body of each holster under the hoods. This exact pair of holsters were displayed by Dr. Joseph Murphy, along with Samuel Walker’s personal Walker colts. CONDITION: Very good considering their use. A portion of 1 hanging strap was restored by Daniel Cullity of Sandwich, Mass. The hoods are very delicate and have become somewhat detached. The leather finish is crazed on both hoods and holster body. Portions of some tie-down straps are missing. Makers marks are clear. The brass cap on the right holster has been shot through by a bullet, which must have been quite an experience for both horse and rider. A once in a lifetime opportunity for the collector of Walker Colts to add the only known example of these holsters in private hands to their collection. 50901-1 TEP (3,500-5,000) – Lot 2242
