Tooled Leather Holster Fits Colt Model 1849
Item #: WR19
This is a tooled leather holster from the Civil War era. This flap holster is made from 1/8" thick leather. There is no crazing. flaking or any other detractors with this one! The tooled floral design on the flap makes me think Texas! A two line rope border surrounds a flower in full bloom on the flap. The design continues onto the back side of the holster, with a single line following the outline of the holster and a checkered pattern behind the single belt loop. The single belt loop is attached to the holster by two copper rivets. The single piece leather is stitched to form the body of the holster. There is no plug on the toe and don't believe there ever was. The stitching is very strong, no loose or broken stitches here! The closure stud is an awning type finial made of iron. An outline of a Colt pistol can be clearly seen on the body of the holster. I tried a 4" Model 49 and the holster fit it like a glove. This is an absolutely beautiful holster and will display great with your Colt or Texas Cavalry collection!
