That is why the call it a Trading Post. Perry acquired this saddle in a trade for two pieces of antique pottery. We know the saddle was given to Mort Kallis as a gift from Autry and later ended up in a collection owned by Ed Andysiak.
We have extensive correspondence between people who know the saddle and family members of Mort Kallis. The saddle has been in our showroom for about 3 years and in that time it has had a write-up in the local newspaper and seen many admirers who stop by the Post to see it and take a picture with it. We dont know how many of these saddles are out there, but cant imagine to many. Autry had a connection with Gallup due to movies and invited Toby Turpen to the grand opening of his museum in California.You might think about getting this for the next Rose Bowl Parade. We are extremely reasonable, but the inspection offer is provisional--exclusively at our option. This is a service that most companies would only offer to established account customers. Each of our pieces is unique and carefully photographed. If you are a regular customer, lets just say, we will be much more generous. Thanks for doing business with Perry Null Trading Co!
