    Congratulations on the acquisition of a beautiful sporran! No doubt you’ll get much use from it.

    Late to the thread but for what it's worth...

    That is a truly outstanding rebuild of your sporran; I'm sure you made the right decision to have it re-bagged by an obvious craftsperson. Wear it with pride.

    I have a similar brass cantle sporran, which, when I got it, still had the Blanco on both the bag and the belt but it was badly cracked. A military friend suggested that the best option was to remove the blanco down to the leather and start afresh. He recommended a stiff clothesbrush. I was sceptical, but it did, indeed, remove every trace of the blanco. Sadly, the belt disintegrated but the buckle was sound and I reused that on a new belt. Under the blanco, the leather was sound and very soft, not sure what animal it came from, it looks more like pigskin but that seems unlikely. The surface had a brushed appearance, almost like suede, in a light brown colour. So attractive, in fact, that I kept it like that.

    I've always intended to get a new bag for it and your experience has me thinking that it's time to get on with it and stop procrastinating!
    Regards, Sav.

    I thought I would include a few more photos of the bag now in my possession. It is pretty special and Greg at Margaret Morrison gave me first class service in sourcing a really nice deerskin. I highly reccommend their services. As you can see they ship it in a beautiful box to keep it in too and the sporran strap(belt) is really simple and is also made out of the same skin as the sporran.

    I photographed my second brass cantle sporran that just arrived beside the one I just received from MM. Needless to say I will be sending this to them too for a rebagging in the future.

    WillowEstate, if you are able to send yours to them. If anyone can help you they can.

    Best,
    Adam
