Anyone know German? lol

I got a stock saddle and what looks to be a AP saddle with an arab mare I used to have. I was thinking of selling the AP saddle so I can buy a jump saddle. I went out this morning to have a good look at it (i have never used it). Its not in great condition, some of the stitching is also coming apart. Its quite old.
It says on it FELS BACH AG. So I did some research and apparently it was made in Swizterland, and is a Rittmeister saddle.
It also has the Courbette symbol on the flap. On the inside flap most of the writing is rubbed off, but it looks like it says Kadett or something.
I came across this
This saddle looks quite similar to the one I have however its all in German! Well at least I think its German lol.
Does anyone know anything about these saddles? Are they good quality? Would it be worth getting it fixed up or should I just sell it, towards a new one?
Any help is much appreciated. Thanks

I know some German, but sorry -- that's not it! I think that's actually Swedish.

I tried to find a site that could translate it, but didn't have any luck. However, I'm on ddddiiiiaaaalllll-uuuupppppp so it takes forever and probably if you looked you could find a site that could help you out.

I did a search for "rittmeister saddlery" - all of the ones for sale that came up are a courbette rittmeister - courbette makes a pretty good saddle. The used ones I saw online ranged from $295 to $795. I'd say that's a pretty good saddle, but if the "rittmeister" brand has been sold recently(?) or changed quality(?) then it might be a different story :)

Thanks! Yeh I think the Fels bach ag company was bought by courbette a while ago. Im going to clean it up and take it into the local saddlery to see what they think :) Thanks for your help everyone.

Anyway, rock stream corporation? Maybe that's a lead? I know absolutely no (appropriate) German so....

Maybe it's a scandanavian language? Idk, that's what it looks like

Google came up with this image, fels bach ag. Swiss saddle was the caption

Also ""Made in Switzerland, the Courbette Fels Bach AG is an older, hand-crafted model demonstrating great craftsmanship. Featuring a plain, long flap and a" quote from craig's list but I couldn't load the page, second result on google if you type in fels bach ag.
