A wooden saddle from Tibet.
This saddle with its high pommel is made from quite crudely carved pale wood with a leather pad tacked on as a seat.
The leather is hard and dry.
Skins and textiles would have been placed on the seat.
This saddle has a red wax seal on its front panel - this indicates that it was an antique legally exported from China.
Dimensions of saddle : 15½" (39.5cm) long x 17" (43.5cm) wide x 12½"(32cm) tall
Ref : saddle021
