Very fine condition pommel bags. The short bridge indicates they were placed right in front of the saddle. These vintage bags are marked by an ink cartouche, as well as a punched design. The punched design or cartouche, is of questionable origin, as it says "Wells Fargo & Co. Express". According to Bartz in the standard Wells Fargo reference, there are no known marked WF pommel bags, and we strongly suspect this cartouche is not original. Further, this would have been a piece of personal equipment for the rider. Nonetheless, these bags are a "beauty" in excellent condition, and perhaps date to 1900 or before.
