    There was a man that made the very finest turkey call ever and he passed 15 years ago and his calls are going for two to three thousand dollars. Many,many years from this day these sporrans will increase in value just like the turkey call. Best to purchase now while you still can! Regards Mattie

    While we're on the topic of new pictures- here's one that just shipped out today. An antique Seaforth Highlanders' cantle with newly made body, tassels, and new tassel bells.
    Body in goathair per the commissioner's request, rear in custom dyed pigskin.

    Also of note, the queue now extends out to mid-January, so winter wedding / Burns' Night orders that might be hanging out there might wish to lock in a spot or miss your event!

    VERY smart, Scott!!!

    Is there no limit to your talent, Scott?!

    My top pic is the Orionson Sporran. Dang!

    The carp is both unusual and beautiful.

    The refurbished Seaforth you've posted is a classic.

    I have two new ideas for future sporran commissions, Scott. One plain leather sporran and one brass cantled sporran. The ideas have been brewing for quite some time, and a plethora of highly detailed, visual examples have been gathered...

    That Seaforth Highlanders sporran is amazing!! (I think I know who it's for...)

    One sees that quite often in military photos, the same photo showing some officers wearing horsehair sporrans, some wearing goathair sporrans (sometimes these are sporrans which had belonged to their father or other relative who had previously served in the regiment; it was common for a family to serve in the same regiment for generations).

    Likewise some of the badger sporrans worn by Sergeants and Officers in the Argylls appear to be quite old, the old ones worn side by side with new ones by L&M.
