I purchased an interesting, and what I consider to be a somewhat rare old "San Marco Swallow-Style" leather saddle a few years ago and am curious as if anyone can assist in identifying the model name and age???

It is actually a quite comfortable riding saddle, as it was initially used on my 1949 Hetchins (more comfortable than a Brooks Swallow in my backside's opinion). The underside utilizes a protective plastic layer for wet weather riding. Maybe these were used on early Bianchi's or Cinelli's?????????

Photos of the saddle may be viewed at the following address:


Appreciate any info that can be provided.

Thanks in advance!
