SADDLERIES OF MONTANA:
Montana’s Makers from Territorial Times to 1940
Jay C. Lyndes, Bobby R. Reynolds, E. Helene Sage
• With nearly 550 photos, explores the products of saddleries in
Montana Territory and State, 1860–1940
• Extensive photography of rare cowboy and ranching equipment
(saddles, chaps, gun leather, and more)
• Includes information on maker marks and other critical valuing
details for collectors
This one-of-a-kind resource covers the saddleries of Montana Territory and State
over the period from approximately the 1860s through 1940. Learn about the
fascinating societal impact of nearly 200 prominent and lesser-known saddleries,
brought to life with 545 photos and 9 useful charts. These “horse hardware stores”
designed, manufactured, and sold myriad practical and artistic equipment for
cowboys, ranchers, farmers, miners, loggers, and every settler that ventured west
of theMississippi River. Saddleries’ hard-working—and today, collector-quality—
products ranged from saddles and chaps to cuffs and boots, from hats to horse
grooming tools to trunks. Organized by date and eight different geographical areas
of Montana, here are details, vintage documents, receipts, and photos of some of
the most exciting and desirableWestern collectibles known today (chaps, saddles,
bridles, etc.), with emphasis on their maker’s marks for valid reference.
