Off brand saddles can be durable if made correctly. The only thing that concerns me about this saddle is the high price on such a used piece of tack. I certainly wouldn't pay that much for a saddle that looks like this. It does, essentially, look like "junk". But sometimes pics bring out the worst and if you're serious about wanting to buy it, I would definitely go look at it first to make sure it is worth every ounce of $250 that they want for it.
ETA: There are a TON of english saddles on CL in my area going for under $100. They appear to be decent saddles, and a lot of them are in better shape than this one. That's what I'm basing my opinion on.
