Vintage Antique Hardware Store holster For a Colt with a 5 1/2 barrel

RJT#6270 -

Description

Original Hardware company Holster, This Mexican double loop holster was made for sale to the hardware store and general store trade.

Although there is no catalog numbers visible on this holster,I am sure it was shop made and machine sewn. All stitches are strong and intact, however I believe it has been re-sewn at some time. The workmanship is very good, like that of Heiser. A Mexican loop style with  conchos added. It fits a Colt Single Action 5 1/2 inch barrel and would fit others as well. The leather is fully alive and would give a century of service or displaying with your vintage pistola.  One feature that is somewhat puzzling Is the quarter size hole cut in the top of the skirt. (see pictures) . Why is it there? Well, I believe it was done to allow the owner to lace his suspenders through to provide more support for his old hog leg. I have seen similar devices before.  It is the type of thing that makes collecting interesting, finding the story behind in the treasured item.
