Bollock Pouch

$ 65.00

The name "Bollock Pouch" comes from the many middle ages illuminations I have found showing a bollock dagger or knife between the girdle, or belt, straps of medieval pouches and purses. This theme is mirrored in the two small draw string bags on the front of the pouch.  This historical belt pouch is also detailed by the "Museum of London's Dress Accessories - Medieval Finds From Excavations in London," as one of the types of leather purse with flaps. A similar pouch is described and show in "Leather and Leatherworking in Anglo-Scandinavian Medieval York."  This pouch is often shown being worn by noblemen, and merchants.

 The Bollock pouch or purse is made of cow leather has two draw string bags made of pig hide on the outside, comes in a honey brown and period brass buckle cataloged in Dress Accessories.

The body of the pouch (not including belt loops) measures 8 1/2 inches wide by 6 1/2 inches high, will accommodate a full checkbook and more, and fits on a 2 1/2 inch belt.

Colors of brown can vary, depending on leather availability.
