Sutton Hoo Pouch Gallery|
The Sutton Hoo pouch is based on the fittings and trappings found in the Sutton Hoo Ship Burial. It is characteristic of early Anglo Saxon and Viking pouches from 500-1000 A.D.. Only the lid and enamel pieces survived. This pouch is detailed in "Aspects of Anglo-Saxon Archaeology, Sutton Hoo and other discoveries" by Rupert Bruce-Mitford. The Sutton Hoo pouch is a good example of Viking, Germanic, and Anglo Saxon purses & belt pouches from the dark ages.
The Sutton Hoo pouch measures (not including belt loops) 6 1/2 high and 11 inches wide at the bottom, is made of 4 oz leather, and comes in black or brown.
Enameled pieces are available from Raymond's Quiet Press and are not included.
This pouch is being redesigned and a grand collaboration will result in a spectacular pouch coming soon with a plated and plaqued solid lid with hinges like seen below.
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!
