Goubitz Purse Gallery

The "Goubitz Purse" is named for the author of Purses In Pieces.  In that book 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 G.  It has one interior compartment and 3 exterior baglets or pouchlets with draw strings.

The Goubitz purse body is made of cow leather and interior is elk or deer and the draw string and pouchlets or baglets are made of deer. It also features a period gold plated furniture from the Annunciation Triptych as does the 15th C pouch. The front bag has access under the lid, the back pouch has access above the baglets, making for a total of 5 compartments.

The body of the pouch measures 7 inches wide by 7 1/2 inches high, will accommodate a full checkbook, and fits on a 2 1/2 inch belt.

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!
