16th - 17th century large belt wallet with a square front
Price: £42.00

These belt wallets are made from vegetable tanned calf and goat skins that have been dyed using period dyes and they are made entirely by hand. The design is based on a number of 16th and 17th century illustrations and is a common design in that period. It is quite common to have a number of separate compartments in this style of pouch and the more elaborate version has two pouchlets on the front held closed with their own drawstrings. The more decorative versions have tooled designs on the front flap and a bound edge.

Another version has four separate sections. The main section has two pouchlets on the front held closed with their own drawstrings and there is a fourth section behind the main bag. The whole pouch is secured with a buckle.

They measure 9 inches wide and 8 inches long (23 x 20 cm).
