I gotta sell some saddles!

I have some saddles I put new leather on. These are all imperfect in one way or another.

Let's start with rhm#217, a Brooks B17 narrow of the style about 1950, keyhole cutouts on top. Chrome frame with bag loops, brass rivets.

Natural leather now, I will gladly stain out black, brown, or red; or I can apply a natural beeswax finish.


What's wrong? The keyhole cutouts on the top are off center. Doh!

How about $100 plus shipping? Or make me an offer?

Here's rhm#197, black Brooks narrow frame, no eyelets in the bag loops. Holes punched in the top, heraldic dog stamps on the sides.

What's wrong? Well, I wanted to try Angelus leather paint, and took the chance the "lavender" would match my Holdsworth. It didn't.

I know you can't judge the color from the photo. So, if you're interested, let me know and I will send a postcard with a sample of the paint.

Rudi, by any chance is rhm#210 available? Since I own rhm#10 and rhm#110, it seems only fitting that rhm#210 would also reside in NH.
