This purse appears to have been inspired by the Scottish sporran, a bygone man-purse Scotsmen used to wear with their pocketless kilts! Traditional sporrans sometimes had the animal's head taxidermied, and in the 18th century it became popular for sporrans to have a flap top and trailing horse hair tassels, like this unique purse here. While its gold chain and leather shoulder strap design suggest it was made in the '60s or '70s, it could be older. A great find for vintage purse collectors, Scottish history nerds, and taxidermy enthusiasts alike!
