Need help please Identify this very early part top bow saddle?
I just found these on a shelf and a customer asked what they fit, any ideas,Bob
Buggies I would think. Need to look at the Chicago Museum of Sci/ History downstairs where the buggies are. I think that they even have Geo Washington's old buggy there.
I have seen those on a 1910 2-cyl Buick and a 1909 REO 2-cyl. Here's a photo of the one on the REO with the leather pad and strap. Most of the time they are missing. I would guess that it was a universal item from an auto supply.
