Please let me preface this post by saying I am against the trade in endangered species! This post is regarding the "recycling", if I may use that term, of an antique/vintage fur.
I have a unique opportunity to obtain and antique leopard skin ladies coat that is in exceptionally good shape. I have a confirmation from a well known. high quality Canadian sporran maker that they would be interested in manufacturing sporrans from this fur. What I'd like to know is if there are any of our Canadian members who might also be interested in an exceptionally rare sporran? If so please p.m. me!
The coat is a certified antique and there are no concerns regarding CITES as long as there is NO exportation. Preliminary estimates are $300-400.00 per sporran.. These sporrans would be a unique and wonderful heirloom.
If the Mod's feel this post in any way violates any forum rules please allow me to apologize in advance.
