English saddle question

I have a friend that bought a house and the previous owners left an english saddle in the building , i he asked me about it but i cant find who it is made by . All i found on the saddle itself were Made in england and a stamp on the left leg flap . It is in the shape of a shield with the letter A in fancy script inside the shield ! Can anyone point me in any direction , i have looked at web pages trying to find out but no luck !

There is a British manufacturer called "Albion" but I am not sure if an "A" is their logo. Without a photo it is hard to help you.

But what are you seeking to do with it?
To use the saddle, it must fit correctly both horse and rider.
If the rider has been taught Western - he /she will need some help in how to fit it and use it.

This is the Albion logo/button:

I wonder if it's an Arabian Saddlery saddle? They have a red background to their button, but it's hard to see what's on it.
The Arabian Saddle Company

Ascot is another brand, but they are cheap Asian saddles.

Antill saddles use a shield on their lables, though I don't know where they were/are made.

Ashland saddles are made in England.

Let us know what seat size, tree size, and price. You never know, someone on here might want it . Pictures would be nice too. I'm looking for a 16" wide tree All Purpose saddle.
