Can Anyone Tell Me More About This Very Old Saddle?

Fresh from the farm. I just found this old bicycle saddle. Can anyone help me with the time period and possible maker of this saddle? Approximate value would be appreciated as well. I am new to bicycles, so any help would be appreciated.

I got also curious, because if that saddle has any value, my grandmothers attic is gold mine.

I suggest that you post it on the CABE (Classic Antique Bicycle Exchange) I would be surprised if someone couldn't give you the info you seek. The Classic and Antique Bicycle Exchange

Let's see some pictures of your grand mother's attic contents, please. I love that sort of thing. I might add that I also have an attic and stuff goes up there every now and then.

Could be from an early motorcycle with all the probable travel in the springs.

Pre-war almost certaily, but of a style common both here and in Europe (up/down springs, front pivot loop, leather hammock). Not worth much outside of that as a curio in the condition it's in, though.

Perusing eBay completed listings I'll guess $20-30 if the frame is salvageable.
