H.H. Heiser Leg O’Mutton Double Barrel Shotgun Case on Ebay

If you follow this blog at all, you know how much I like H.H. Heiser’s shotgun. From 1874 – 1955, the Hermann H. Heiser Saddlery Co. of Denver, Co., made some of the finest saddles, shooting accessories, and leather goods in the country.

Today, items by H.H. Heiser’s s are very collectible. The leather, basketweave leg o’mutton you see here was one of Heiser’s more popular products, and I can’t imagine a classier was to transport and protect a vintage side-by-side shotgun.

Most leg o’mutton cases were made with a thin leather exterior, a cardboard middle to give the case its shape, and a lightweight wool lining. But not Heisers. Their cases are made from saddle-grade leather throughout, and the finishing on all the details is excellent. And that’s why these cases command such premium prices today.
