Black Lacquered Antique Chinese Pack carved saddle
Please refer to our stock # TC174 when inquiring.
This is a traditional Chinese pack saddle which were used throughout China for carrying various sacks of grains and goods.
The front is carved foo dogs and there is a key carved decoration around the border. It is unusual to find this type saddle with the painted black lacquered finish. This one was probably owned by a wealthy family and used only for special events. The finish is worn off as the straps from the packs and sacks have worn off the finish across the areas where they would have been rubbing with the motion of the horse.
