A true treasure of the West. This cowgirl riding suit was purchased from an elderly lady named Dixie in Cedar City, Utah.
The story goes, that is was made by John O. Davis for his wife Gracie. She wore it in a Wild West show which performed for the mother of the Queen of England 1919. John was said to have shot the deer, tanned the hide and made the suit himself. He lived to be 107 years old and is buried alongside Gracie in Panaca, Nevada. I can rarely guarantee 100% the provenance on things like this, but I did find an image of their graves and the dates are accurate.
Size: it fits like a ladies XS-S
The riding skirt has a high waist that measures 24" inches.
Condition: excellent with minor signs of wear (as seen in the pictures).
This is an extremely rare piece of Western Americana that rarely can be found in this great condition.
