    I'm trying to find out how old my dad's saddle in, made by E. Arundel & Co, Perth.

    Has anyone heard of this saddler?

    I haven't been able to find any other info on the saddle maker. but I guess back then they weren't very good about keep records LOL

    Would love to see a pic of the saddle. :)

    Go to Revolutions at Whiteman Park - there is a reproduction on Arundel's from a 1920s picture. Awesomely cool! If you have a chat to Val, the curator, she might be able to find out how long they operated for.

    ETA Oh, I have a pic
    My favourite bit of the museum :)

    never heard of E. Arundel & Co, Perth. google it... that's too old.. why not try some fashion brands? nice low profile too, and not WAY expensive. for example, bucas, harrison howard.... you name it!

    Oh this is interesting! I too have an old stock saddle by E. Arundel and I wish I knew how old it was and it's history! It came to me with a horse and is still usable. I would love to know more.... Mandymoo?
