I had on idea what this was when I purchased it at auction. i thought it was kinda neat. Someone told me it was camel saddle. A 16'' x 11'' cushion has notches at the ends. It's old and the laces and stitches are worn. it's stuffed with straw. Several of the seams are split and the leather is worn. It certainly has the character of an often used piece.
