Just in case you wondering what kind of prices an old high back saddle is bringing these days, here are 6 that were recently sold on Ebay. Plus one very good miniature saddle. What do you think? Are they fair prices for desirable collector saddles?

Any guesses on the maker? Color is amazingly still very light. It must have not been in the sun much over the years.

This is a McClellan saddle. It was first produced for the US War Dept in 1859 and has been used by the Calvary up until WW2. Early versions were rawhide covered but yours is covered in leather. They are fairly common but do have some value when complete and in good condition.

Just came across this saddle and was wondering if anyone had any information about it? It does say 11inch saddle on one of the buttons. Thanks in advance!

I found this beautiful saddle in a pawn shop in Arizona...

Love this! Nicely done Storm.

The saddle I learned to ride on 50 years ago. Was my fathers and likely my granddad’s too. No markings. This seemed like a fitting tribute to a saddle well used and a bit abused. I plan to add some photos of family riding on it!

Can anyone help me with more information on this saddle? I bought it and don't know anything about the maker. Any help would be appreciated. Never had this brand before.

Any ideas on who this maker could be? All I can make out is Made in Mexico
Any info on this one? I think late 1800s, early 1900s for age. Sound correct? No makers mark that I could find but some really cool tooling. She's definitely a decoration piece only at this point. Value possibly?
“Storey & Campbell-Vancouver BC” Update 1: The bottom says VANCOUVER BC. So now I’m hoping someone knows saddle makers from the Vancouver area 😊 Update 2: I was informed that apparently the only saddle maker in Vancouver was Storey Pacific. Does anyone have any insight into that?? Wondering if anyone can help me determine this saddles brand. Only one stamp on it and it’s pretty wore and hard to read. Fenders aren’t original** What I can make of it is “maker” “VA” “CUVER” and maybe “DC” at the bottom. Any info would be greatly appreciated
Just looking for info on this saddle, no marks other than a made in Columbia sticker on the bottom. Just wondering what type of saddle it is and the approx. Age.
I’m scouring the internet trying to find information on this saddle/saddle maker Eugene Noble was a saddle maker in Heppner, Oregon in 1906 (from what I’ve read online). Very limited information and I can’t find any pictures of other saddles he made or anything besides a couple obituaries. Does anybody know what this thing is worth? (if anything) also I’m just fascinated by the history of it haha
Hello! I recently obtained a MacPherson model# 598 with a San Fernando Tree built in 1969. Does anyone have any details on the 598 and the tree? I'm coming up short online looking for specs. Thank you!
Anyone familiar with Double H Saddle of Elko, Nv? This saddle has the running snake tooling as seen on some of the Garcia saddles.
Selling this vintage saddle as is , for a decoration, feel free to make a offer
I’ve had this saddle for about 40 years. It was at least 20 years old when I got it, making it a 1950’s or 1960’s model. Horse head on stirrup leathers and a W with a saddle in the middle on the bottom of one side. No name anywhere. Does anyone have any knowledge about these saddles they would share?
Trying to find info out about this saddle! I know about the manufacturer but that’s about it. When I try to find saddles by them there isn’t a whole lot of them for sale or information about the saddles themselves. I don’t know if anyone knows anything about Power River Saddles but I would love to find more out about it. I tried to find a serial number but couldn’t find one anywhere. There is what looks to be a stamp for a year buy the only number eligible is a 9 I know they started making the saddles in the 1930’s but other than that I don’t know anything.
Curious if anyone might have knowledge or can point me in the direction to get knowledge on this saddle. Has a long horn brand on the right fender no other name or mark other then.
Looking for Info on a Saddler named Jeff Kask. Not much out there on the web. Anyone one know of him or his work?
What does anyone know about this maker? I had never heard of P.A. Wilkerson until I got this saddle about a year or so ago. I was told it was an ‘old mule saddle’, though I don’t have a mule and have been using it on my mutton withered BLM Mustang gelding instead. If anyone knows anything about it, how much do you think it’s worth? It definitely needs a good cleaning, new fleece, and I’m sure there’s pieces missing or something. Still, it rides 3-5 days a week on average and holds its own just as well as, if not better than, my newer saddles! And without having to break in the seat! 😏
