Restoration Project – 1933 Celtic Engraved Wm Anderson – Edinburgh Fur Vintage Sporran

Restoration Project - Vintage Sporran

Fine vintage William Anderson & Sons Edinburgh sporran with Celtic engraved cantle. The sporran was made in 1933, the fur had deteriorated so badly that we had to fully restored the front. The original was sealskin but we wanted to use an ethically sourced fine quality Musquash fur.  The restored sporran now has the look of a classic Scottish otter fur sporran ( the Eurasian otter is a CITES 1 protected species and so Scottish otter fur cannot be used anymore ). During the restoration we found the date 1933 under the old fur. The back has a back pocked and is marked with the gilt makers stamp.

A very fine vintage dress sporran from a classic Highland wear maker.

Size Approx. 9 1/2″ x 8″ = Approx 24cm x 20cm

    We use US beaver for some modern designs. However, the Musquash fur looks more like the old Scottish Eurasian Otter pelts, so we use it for a more classic vintage look. In the past Scottish sporran makers used otter, but today they are rightly a protected CITES 1 species.
