    Name of sporran style

    Is there a name for the sort of daywear sporran that has a leather cantle, three tassels, and no targe or studs? I'm referring to the style seen here:

    Thanks!

    I doubt there is any particular nomenclature associated with it. It is certainly a good looking piece and has a lot of the characteristics of the pre-Culloden era. In general it might just be described as a day wear sporran and that's it

    May I ask where you got it?

    Sorry I cannot be more specific.

    It's not mine. It's from this thread: http://www.xmarksthescot.com/forum/f...xamples-85511/

    Looks like a Ferguson Britt sporran:
