I believe this to be a 16 seat. This is either a very early saddle or the rivets have been replaced with non Hermes Rivets. The saddle is in fair vintage condition, plenty broken into. The saddle does have missing stitches and shows wear.
I don't know much about saddles or riding. I think this would be mostly good as a decorative piece. All appears to be intact with exception of the missing rivet on the front. Overall it's a very well love and used saddle with great bones and plenty of life left.The leather is nice but shows sign of use and age.
