English saddle question

I already posted this question in the tack forum, but I am eager to find out if anyone knows anything about this saddle. I am looking at buying it, but the seller doesn't know the maker. Also, is it a good saddle? Thank you.

If there is no maker's mark stamped on there somewhere, it's likely to be a beginner package type saddle with low quality leather/workmanship.

The leathers look pretty crispy, and the irons aren't fillis, which means they are light weight and likely to flop around a lot.

Not having a brand, I'd avoid it unless I knew with great certainty that it absolutely fit my horse.

As twisted wire said, I would be extremely reluctant to buy a saddle without knowing if it would fit my horse. I'd only buy a secondhand one if I knew the brand/model and had previously tried it on my horse.
