    Gene Autry Saddle. One of 12 Western stock saddles made for the legendary singing cowboy by Ed Gillmore Saddlery of North Hollywood in the 1930s and '40s, it was used by Autry in his Flying A Ranch Rodeo, an act that broke all previous attendance records when it performed at Madison Square Garden in 1940. Sadly, Gillmore was murdered that same year, and his shop was sold to Hollywood Saddlery. In amazing condition, the saddle features an overall floral design with Autry's name on the side jockey. and conchos on the swells, skirts, and edge of the cantle. A true rarity and an important piece of Western memorabilia.
