Bespoke Silver Sporran Project
Bespoke Silver Sporran Project - One of our old piping friends came to us with an idea to use a fine vintage sterling silver sporran cantle that once belonged to a late great of the piping world. He had an idea to replicate a sporran made in the 1920's using sterling silver sporran droppers and beads. In addition he had a antiqued pig skin he want us to use to make the leather pouch. So the challenge was to create something wonderful based on a classic style.
Our silversmith had to create five hand crafted droppers and beads in sterling silver. In addition to the silver droppers we used silver studs to style the hand-crafted targe styling on the leather centre piece.

A Sporran is a pouch (Scottish Gaelic for ‘purse’). Now a decorative part of Highland dress, it was originally an everyday practical item. Made of leather or fur, it usually has more or less elaborate silver or other ornamentation, especially on the clasp or hanger. It is worn on a chain or belt around the waist, allowing the sporran to lie below the waist of the person wearing a kilt.
