A very fine example of an Ideale TB 90 Daniel Rebour Special Competition leather bike seat, dating to the 1970s/80s. The seat is impressed "Rodée Main Selon Rebour". This translates roughly as "Hand oiled according to Rebour" and means that the saddle was treated with a leather conditioning and softening process patented by Daniel Rebour. Rebour was technical advisor and illustrator for the French trade magazine "Le Cycle" and between the 1940s and 1980s he produced thousands of meticulous drawings illustrating technical advances in the world of cycling. He was also a keen cyclist and came up with his treatment to make saddles more comfortable as a result.

This saddle is covered with richly patinated brown leather with copper rivets round the edges, each stamped with the Ideale name. It has a chromed steel framework and rails, and a chromed steel nose maked with the Ideale name and model number. It also bears the Selection Tricolore Course stamp. These saddles are much sought after, particularly in such good condition.
Condition : Very good with minor wear commensurate with its age.

Welcome to Ginger Tom's Curious Eclectic.  We are a husband and wife team, both with a lifelong interest in antiques. Our business stems from the usual collector turned dealer scenario.  As our own collections grew, it became obvious we needed to redistribute some items in order to make space to buy new treasures to feed our own habit.

Buying to sell seemed the natural progression from this. We have been involved in buying and selling since 2004, but have only recently taken the decision to establish an online presence. We don't specialise in any particular area, but our interests do influence our stock purchases to a degree.

Our stock includes a varied mix of unusual antique, interesting vintage and stylish contemporary objects that would suit many different settings. Our key criteria is that we only buy, and therefore only sell, items that we would have in our own home and believe that if we like something, others will too.

Our opening hours are 9.30am to 5.30pm, Monday to Friday.
