Zaldi saddles are made in Spain and still are, to my knowledge. They used to be good quality, material-wise, though did have a few slightly odd tree shapes.

Never heard of Clinton Northrop which suggests they're either a very small independent saddlemaker, a larger maker who just exports saddles to the US market, or a US retailer buying a generic product from a Walsall saddlemaker and badging it themselves with a vaguely British name.

If it's made in the UK you shouldn't go far wrong with leather/tree/original panel flock qualities.
