ANITQUE VINTAGE LEATHER BATWING COWBOY CHAPS marKed GEORGE THOMPSON DURANGO COLO
$600
Item ID #528

These George W. Thompson made chaps have seen some use. They did not sit idle while work was being done. G.W. Thompson learned his trade from Issac Cherry who learned from R.T. Frazier of Pueblo, Colorado. The top strap on the right and left leg has been replaced. The leather is thick and in good condition. There are no rips or tears. All the buckles are still accounted for. The second buckle from the bottom on the left side is held in place by only half the strap. These chaps have a great look. When looking at the pictures I noticed the letter K lightly carved in the upper part of the leather on both sides. The letters are about two-inches tall. I also found the initials CDK. These letters are very lightly stamped and are about a half-inch tall. Never noticed the letters before taking the pictures. If you have any questions or would like more pictures, just let me know. Will do what I can to help.
