TYPE: A Tibetan wooden saddle

CIRCA: early 1900’s

A Tibetan wooden saddle with shargreen (the skin from a shark or ray) decorating the front and back, and metal edging on parts. Beautifully grained wood and a fine running yungdrung (lucky swastika) engraved on some of the metal edging. A splendid example of an ‘everyday’ Tibetan nomad herder’s saddle in good condition with beautiful patina on the wood surfaces.
