    Looks more like a chatelaine purse than a sporran.

    Put a couple of tassels on it, and I’d wear a new version of it.

    Yes it's not a sporran at all, it's a purse.

    I see all the time vintage ladies' purses being sold as sporrans, by those who don't know the differences.

    That cantle is pretty wild, though. I’d be worried about snagging it on something…
