    @terrypaulkettering ... The painter may say ...''First we place the tree
    in the painting ...... Then we begin to see the paintings among the trees.''

    Stop looking.

    Begin seeing, where the damp, stretchable leather could be ... amongst that frame.

    Then tell your leather handler about it ... he will do what you have seen.

    ..... wind in your sails ....

    My Smalley catalogue doesn't show their saddles but the pics of the bikes do. I have several ads for Smalley bikes but will have to research a little later today.

    This might be a little early for your frame as it's 1893/94. Maybe yours is a little later but it's a sample anyway as for an idea as to what yours could look like.

    You are missing something in the front. Maybe more than just a clip
