"DENVER" saddle

Postby jja » Mon Aug 30, 2010 8:31 am

Just found a great old saddle at a farm sale with only "DENVER" as a makers mark. I'm having trouble finding out who the saddlemaker was, anyone have any ideas?

In the Late 50's there was a "Denver Saddlery" on Larmer St. - the owner lived in Wheatridge - across the street for my Aunt and Uncle

I believe Denver Saddlery is now known as Colorado Saddlery. I may be wrong, but it seems like the stamp would read Denver Saddlery, Denver, Colorado in a circular design similar to Colorado Saddlery's stamp. I don't know when the name changed for sure. Some one older than I would know more, I could be totally mistaken.

I have a saddle with the stamp Denver Drygoods, Denver Colorado
It's a low backed small swelled saddle single rigged saddle my G'pa bought from a couple of brothers that did some rodeoing in the early days. I think he bought it in the early 40's
