Why this is a
Masterpiece

Such saddles were used by government officials and noblemen for ceremonial trips, and as diplomatic gifts. These uses determined the extremely rich decoration of this saddle: its tree of the Middle-Asian type is carved from a whole piece of wood, the front arch and the strap are covered with velvet with golden embroidery, the open parts are decorated with carved ivory, and forged stirrups are gilded.

History of the Object
This richly decorated saddle was among the presents that one of the last emirs of Bukhara gave to the Romanov family.
