Historical Accuracy: 15th Century Renaissance Belt Pouch is taken from the "Annunciation Triptych" illumination. This pouch shows up often in other 15th Century illumination. In the "Annunciation Triptych" the purse is adorned with two moon shaped fittings, has a buckle, and fashionably displays a bollock knife or dagger in a scabbard tucked behind the pouch. The buckle is from the Museum of London's Dress Accessories. This seems to be the purse or pouch of a Nobleman and is worn by a man.
