Ok another odd item... I can find images of similar ones but not quite the same per the image. I see an image of a Russian M1910 WC Maxim but this saddle doesn't have the assembles that the mount wheels rest in. The wood appears to be hardwood, oak? The 4 saddle sides are hinged and appear to move up for loading reasons..? It has markings per the images 0. 1906 and others I don't recognize. Let me know what you think. Sorry I don't have better images.

Thx

I will post your photos to my Maxim Facebook page, we have several new members who work in museums in Russia that should be able to help.

Thanks that would be great. My Model 1910 would look nice on it in display... Fortunately, I sold the ex's horses ("she rode English" and an occasional Scotsman) to a local company, Dad's Dog Food... I knew she was expensive but once I paid her off and to had cover the up keep of those damn hay burners for 3 years, their days were numbered.

I owned horses years ago, it is a mistake I will never repeat.  Have received a few posts on your photos but nothing positive.  Do you have any additional photos of the saddle?
