Dordrecht Purse

$ 90.00

The "Dordrecht Purse" is named for the the site this example was found.  In Purses in Pieces, Olaf Goubitz details many purses or pouches from the middle ages.   It is a fine and informative book I suggest you add to your library.  Named by him as a Girdle Purse, this pouch uses variation I, which is the most complex and distinctive.  It has two interior compartments, on on the front bag and one in the rear bag, and 3 exterior baglets or pouchlets with draw strings.

The Dordrecht Purse body is made of cow leather and the draw string and pouchlets or baglets are made of deer. It also features a period brass buckle cataloged in Dress Accessories.

The body of the pouch measures 9 inches wide by 8 inches high, will accommodate a full checkbook, and fits on a 2 1/2 inch belt.

Colors of brown can vary, depending on leather availability.
