    Can anyone identify who might have made this sporran?

    Can anyone identify who might have made this sporran?
    I am looking for this exact one. I have found several that are close but none that are an exact match.
    I thought the Rabble may be able to help.
    Thanks.

    Looks like it could be this one from House of Labhran

    Maybe Todd Bradshaw can pipe in and give an opinion. I know he has several sporrans just like the one pictured.

    I believe Todd made his own.
    L and M in Nova Scotia make a close copy, with only subtle differences, at a much better price point that House of Labhran.

    My latest Sporran looks almost identical from what I see in the photo, Photos often don't show true colours though. I got mine through North of Hadrian's Wall in Victoria B.C and they got it from L&M in Nova Scotia. That avoided differences in the Canadian Dollar or import duties and taxes

    Yep, mine are just my own interpretations and modifications of designs I saw on the web.



    I have seen several very similar to the one you are looking for, both from the regular kilt vendors and even on eBay (probably from Pakistan as they were pretty inexpensive but didn't look too bad). The one you have pictured is pig skin, if that helps.

    Yes that one in the OP is a step up in detail-work from the ones usually seen, mainly in the tab things (I don't know what they would be called).

    These have tooled edges on the tabs and the tabs appear to be on braided cords with braided junctures. Usually they're done more simply.

    I had saved that same image; my notes call it a "Glen sporran" though I don't remember what "Glen" references



    Here's an L&M hunting sporran, quite different



    This is by William Scott & Son Edinburgh, note the simpler construction on the tabs



    I looked through all the House Of Labhran offerings (well I think I did, you have to navigate through a number of sub-windows) and I didn't see any of this style.

    Todd's and the Labhran ones are a completely different style, seen in early catalogues from the 1920s and 1930s and as worn by Prince Charles.

    Steve, I have tried doing that on Pinterest, so far I have not had any success, that's why I posted it here hoping that some one may know it's origin.
