MATCHING PISTOL HOLSTER AND BELT CHARREADA GUN RIG

Antique Western Americana matching Holster rig sets are hard to find. This is especially true of South of the Border leather as Mexican leather had a horrible tanning process that did not preserve the leather very well; and would self-destruct in almost no time. In fact, the Premier Mexican Artisans who made saddles used imported English leather. In addition, old Mexican leather items, especially fancy goods, were handed down from generation to generation and saw continuous heavy use until they literally fell apart; then, were usually repaired and continued being used; or, mismatched with another holster or belt. Many South of the Border hombres would use any old holster with any old belt, which accounts for the vast majority of mismatched gun rigs found today. Thus, it is very difficult to find Antique South of the Border matching gun rigs in any condition, much less a custom-made hand embroidered gun rig in minty condition.

This leather is the desirous medium tan color with a stippled (textured) background on the holster and belt. The embroidery is created using fiber from the Agave cactus leaves that are hand twisted into thread; and is the same cactus used to make Tequila. The intricately hand embroidered decoration is done one stitch at a time, i.e., each time the needle is brought up from the back of the leather and brought back through the leather for each individual stitch creates the fine embroidery resulting in the 3-dimensional embroidered design. This unbelievably painstaking process adds to the incredible Artisanship of the hand created pitiado embroidered patterns on the holster and belt that are now a long-lost art form that require the Craftsmanship of a Master Artisan; and must have taken weeks to create. Modern rigs have machine made crude "embroidered" designs or use plastic lacing. This rig has handmade, one stitch at a time embroidery that is very laborious and time consuming to create; and was expensive at the time to create and more expensive to have custom made to order. This rig is an example of fine hand embroidery; and is "Top of the Line" in pitiado artistry, visual appeal, and original cost. This fine delicate hand stitched pitiado embroidery embellishment on the holster & belt is in remarkably fine condition, with no wear or broken threads. This fine thread embroidery piece dates to the late Charro revival period around the 1940’s or so; and has been a long lost Folk Art form. During Parades or Charrerias` (Mexican Rodeos, the national sport of Mexico) Vaqueros would carry a fancy gun rig and use their pistola for firing off blank cartridges that give of a very loud bang and is perfect for showing off and making a spectacle; but are harmless to the crowds. This gun rig was custom made to order, and many of the Charro rigs do not have cartridge loops. Revolvers were traditional and favored by Vaqueros and Charros even after the automatic pistols were introduced. Autos were expensive, needed their own gun rig, and almost all hombres already had a perfectly good revolver and holster rig. This holster fits a medium frame revolver, and measures 8 3/16" tall top to bottom of the skirt and x 5 1/8 " wide on the back side of the skirt. The dimension from the inside bottom of the holster to the back top is 7". The inside dimension across the top of the holster is 4 1/8". The design of the holster is closed toed at the bottom and lined with a one-piece rough suede leather interior and back flap that acts as a belt loop and liner for the skirt. Many holsters do not have a "skirt" backing; but this piece has a 1/2” wide hand embroidered skirt in matching scroll pattern, en suite with the holster and belt, secured by 2 rivets. The side and toe of the holster are beautifully cross hatched laced with matching tan lacing. The center holster panel is a series of scroll patterns with a stippled (hand hammered) background created with a hand punch with tiny, raised round patterns creating a textured background. The matching belt is 1 7/8” wide x 3/16“ thick, is lined with tan calfskin with stitching at the top and bottom borders with decorative hand embroidered pitiado scroll patterns that match the holster with a hand punched stippled background, en suite. The belt is 36 1/2” without the buckle and retains the original embroidered belt retaining loop. The belt is made with 4 belt holes. The measurement from the belt buckle tooth to the nearest hole is 29 1/2” and 34 1/2” to the furthest hole with some very light coloration to the lining from wear. The inside dimension of the rig with the buckle in the hole nearest the belt tip is about 34 1/2”. The oval 3-dimensional horsehead inside a horseshoe with an Aztec border appears to be a later addition with the wide rectangular wire buckle attachment looped through the end of the belt that is secured by 2 large snap rivets; and was probably used because it adds about 2 1/2” to the inside diameter of the rig vs. a traditional buckle with a tongue. However, the belt has a slot in the middle of the buckle end to accommodate a traditional buckle with a tongue, such as a California clip rectangular buckle with cut corners. This holster was custom made to the owner’s specification, with a hammer strap; necessary for wear while mounted on horseback; also has border stitching, suede skin lining, a hand embroidered panel and stippled background, en suite. The snap works fine. The holster could fit several different medium frame revolvers such as Smith and Wesson and Colt. The belt and holster have naturally occurring very slight drying of the leather over time, as some very light rub marks to the holster lacing and edge of the stippled background. This rig could use some leather dressing to restore moisture to the leather, but I have left it in untouched, orginal condition. This handsome gun rig is custom made with hand embroidery. This was expensive when made; and only a Well to do Charro or Wealthy Head of The Spread would be able to afford a finely embroidered custom made to order gun rig like this; and remains in fine to near mint condition. The rig is unmarked, as are all Mexican rigs. This is a fine, fancy, handsome, eye-catching hand pitiado embroidered matching rig from South of the Border, down Mexico way; specifically made for a traditional revolver. This holster rig has very light wear. The belt leather is supple and the holster inside appears unused, with a pleasing, natural tan coloration and light naturally occurring aging in fine, as found, untouched condition. This would be perfect for any Western, Old West, Western Americana, Wild West, Parade, Re-enactment, Charro, Charreada, Charrita, Vaquero, Cowboy, Cowgirl, Buckaroo, Holster, Holster rig, Revolver or Folk-Art collection. Or use as a decorator / wall hanger in an office, den, or Man Cave; or hang on a saddle horn, use as costume or conversation piece.
