VINTAGE HOLSTER & BELT, COLT SAA, FORT WORTH TEXAS MAKER, ATKINS-BOOTHMAN:
These are a matching holster and cartridge belt from Atkins-Boothman Saddlery out of Fort Worth, Texas. Research on the internet shows their saddles are considered to be the best available. Their gun leather is no different. The holster fits a Colt Single Action 4 3/4” perfectly. The holster is leather laced with a hand carved, floral design. The leather lacing is all secure with no loose pieces. The leather is in good shape. From my research these items are circa 1940’s, which is now 80 years old. The belt and holster are both marked Atkins-Boothman Fort Worth, Texas. The belt has a silver plated buckle and keeper, marked Don Ricardo on the back. The front has an inlaid cowboy on a bucking bronco. Don Ricardo was very famous and his work is very collectible. The belt has 20 cartridge loops that will hold the .32 -20 cartridges. All the cartridge loops are firmly attached. The belt measures 44” from tip to tip. These pieces will make a great display piece with a lot of history. The Atkins-Boothman Saddlery building still exists today in the Fort Worth Stockyards. See attached photo of the building as it appears today and a newspaper ad for the store from the 1940’s.
