Question Ever heard of a German Sattlerei beim Kloster Schonthal saddle?

My mom has an old English saddle I ride in occasionally and it's puzzling me about the brand; it says under the flap:

Sattlerei beim Kloster Schonthal
Made in Germany
75936 1 36"

And on one of the studs it says:

"Bein Kloster Sattlerei Schonthai"

Anyone seen one before? I've looked it up online and can't find much. Does it look to be an eventing saddle or something? It's so different from my Collegiate in shape. Here's some pics:

I believe it's an early Courbette, or Courbette bought them out. Something like that . Great saddles though, and that one is in STELLAR condition considering its age!

It's a standard AP saddle, favored as Fox Hunting saddles BITD. It looks just like a Stubben Siegfreid.

This is what it looked like when I brought it out of the depths of the garage last year lol. Just needed some TLC!

It looks like it just didn't get used much in its former life. They quit making saddles under that name in the late 1970s or early 1980s. That saddle is at least 30 years old!

Wow, it definitely doesn't look it! My mom said my dad paid an arm and a leg for it when he bought it for her. Out of curiousity, how much do you think it would go for these days? I think the knee rolls are suede or something.....they're not leather

Yes, they're suede, just used down to shiney in some spots. I'd day $300-450, depending on where you sold it and with what extras.

Oh, and that last number on the billet cover flap is a 31, for 31 cm tree. That's a Medium or Medium-Wide tree measurement.

Very nice saddle, and the age doesn't throw me a bit. What's the seat size? -grabby hands-

Flap says 77291 3 31
