I don't think I've ever heard of this brand

Hmm... Courbette sent me information on my 1980 Felsbach AG/Courbette Husar saddle. This brand is Sattlerei beim Kloster Schonthal and was bought out by Courbette in 1976. However, saddles made between 1976 and 1984 have a Courbette plate and a Sattlerei beim Kloster Schonthal or Felsbach AG logo on their billet protectors, and the nailheads are uncolored. I sent them the serial number on mine, and they told me that it was made in 1980 in their Swiss factory. Of course, mine is not quite as old as this one and is both a Courbette and a Felsbach AG. As far as I know, Courbette is still in business though.

All I can tell you about the age is that if it does not have a Courbette plate as well, it was made before 1976.

Did you send them the number on the saddle or was that information provided?

Good luck!

Yea, the Kloster Schonthal name is the only thing on this saddle. It's on a plate under both sides of the skirt as well as the billet covers and the nail heads. I knew they had been bought out by Courbette in the late '70's which is why I contacted them through their website which gave no clue that Stubben is involved. That's why I was so surprised to get an email back from Stubben after contacting Courbette. They said all they could tell me was that the 1 after the serial number meant I had a 17" tree which I already knew so no help there. This is a pic of the billet cover. Maybe someone would like to dig a little for me. I LOVE old saddles and just like knowing what they've been through. When did you contact Courbette bonyroany?

It was earlier this year, in May. I sent it to info@stubbennorthamerica.com, because that's the address they gave me on this website: Courbette Saddlery Company, Inc. Contact Information
