    Seal Skin Dress Sporran

    I just recently ordered a dark seal skin dress sporran from L&M here in Canada. When I was ordering I was offered the option of either plain dark grey seal skin or dark with really dark mottling. As I envisioned it, the mottling I thought would add interest and look sharp. So I opted for as much dark mottling as I could get as part of the special instructions for the order.

    I am not second guessing but I am not really sure what they could look like and a Google search really didn't turn up much of interest for images. Does anyone here have one or a similar one with lots of mottling that they would be willing to share a picture of?

    Thank you.

    Airaghardt!

    It has a slight spotted leopard appearance, which can be very subtle to quite striking depending on the example in question. You can see many photos of seal pelts online to get a good idea of what it will look like. The mottled seal skin sporrans I have seen from L&M have all conformed to these norms for the natural product.
