This is a set of saddle bags associated with Confederate use during the Civil War. This pair came into the shop with a Haiman Cavalry saber and a couple of other Confederate pieces from Southwest Virginia area. They measure 40" across, with each bag measuring 11" tall and 14" wide. These bags, with the Y closure straps are pictured in Ken Knopp's book "Confederate Saddles and Horse Equipment. The set shown on the cover of the book are very similar to this set. The yoke does not have a hole in the center for a stud, as do the M1859 McClellans, and there are no slots in the yoke to fit over a staple or jockey ring. I'm not sure how this set of bags was secured to the saddle. This set of saddle bags is in very good condition. The russet leather is soft and pliable. There is very little crazing or loose of leather. The Y strap on the right bag is 100% complete, the one on the left bag is broken where the roller buckle would have been. Both of the roller buckles to secure the Y straps are missing. The bags were made to use closure strings, both bags are missing them. All the stitching is very tight and unbroken. A small piece of rope has been add to the left bag where the roller buckle should be in an attempt to secure the strap. If you have a Confederate Cavalry collection these are affordable enough to be a part of it!
