Antique H.H. Heiser high backed saddle!
I have a very old H H Heiser saddle. 15" seat appx. Its in about the original condition. I haven't conditioned it or tried cleaning it as some people that like the antique saddles frown upon that. Its stamped and even has a model number on it.
It's old and not in the best condition but looks like it should still be usable once looked over. The leather ties have broken so it needs them to have the skirts be set solid again. Nothing covers the horn, almost looks like it may have a metal type tree? So tree is solid. The cantle part has some slight damage to the leather but doesnt really effect it. Some holes up top. Fleece is gone as well.
Make me an offer! I've seen them go on ebay for over $850 and some private sellers and dealers have had them priced as high as $2500-$3000. Of course this one would need some clean up work but it may be worth it to someone who can bring out the old in this one. It does the rings on it for the latigo and off billit, just theyre rusted. Also has what looks to be the original thin metal stirrups on it as well. The leather holes for sdjusting the stirrups are good and are securely fastened by leather, not a metal buckle. Again, make an offer. I have a bit into it but don't really have any use for it what so ever. Kind of a waste sitting here. Will try to get pics.
