    Everything Old Is New Again - In Brass

    As most of the rabble probably know by now, I've got something of an interest in historic sporrans.

    I've just completed a project that was inspired by two fairly well known Royal sporrans.




    The cantle is inspired by the one worn by Henry of Battenburg


    While the lower bag takes it's primary configuration from that previously owned by the Duke of Gloucester, currently owned by HRH Prince Charles,
    with metal ball-bells on braided tassels and a pinking and brogued front edge.


    This sporran has a 'benchmate' ordered by the same commissioner as well,



    One for more casual days, one for dressier days.

    As always constructive commentary and critique is most welcome

    Oh Dear Scott, what have you done mate. I thought my sporran ordering days were over. Another magnificent creation, that cantle is absolutely superb, the detail in it is exquisite. I am really liking the alternating dimples and bullseyes. I cannot think of anyone else in the world that creates such masterpieces in this day and age. A really really big well done mate.

    Scott,

    I want the one with the cantle!!! I can't stop looking at it and knowing me, I'll probably dream about it tonight. There it will be, gracefully floating over my head whilst I'm sound asleep.

    Well done my friend, well done.

    Yours aye,
