A RARE and UNUSUAL pair of British cavalry holsters for use on the saddle. Thick black leather with huge rounded flap covers, each fitted with a Gilt Eagle Officer's insignia of the 2nd DRAGOONS - ROYAL SCOTS GREYS The holsters are stitched together at the top ( hidden by the flap covering) and are tapered towards the muzzle end. Heavy duty stitching overall. The insignia are fitted with small screw bolts. Some wear and age cracking to the edges and one of the muzzle end caps is missing. Very stiff and bulky and in need of a good polish ! Some dirt and cobwebs present where these have lain in a shed for over 12 years. I believe the age of these to be from the mid 19th Century as at this time Revolvers were coming into use although Percussion pistols were still used by the military well into the 1860's. Certainly post Waterloo as the insignia bears this battle honour. Generally Grade 8 condition.
