Medieval Frame Pouch Gallery

Brass and bronze frames are found all over Europe.  Many with the sea shell center piece that is somehow related with the pilgrimage of Santiago de Campostella as it is very similar to that pilgrim badge. However, not many of the framed pouches, purses, or bags survived.  The frame is directly out of "Metal Detector finds" and the bag design comes from illuminations found showing this style of pouch.

El Camino de Santiago" (Saint James Way) is the name given to the road the pilgrims followed in the middle age to get to Santiago de Compostella

This pouch is also pictured in  photos from "The Medieval Soldier," by Embelton & Howe.

The Medieval Frame Pouch exterior is made of wool and is lined with linen. The frame is from Raymond's Quiet Press and made of bronze.   The mouth loop is brass rod.  The body of the pouch  measures 5.5 inches wide by 13 inches long (including the frame hanger), it will accommodate a full checkbook and more.

Medieval Frame Pouch $50    

Important Note on Colors

I can not promise or guarantee shades of color or patterns in the leather and texture. I will use the best material possible to maintain the look, hand, and color of each pouch shown. The pouch you receive may vary from the pouches shown!
