VICTORIAN HIGHLAND REGALIA

The 2 paramilitary Highland Clan items offered here all date to the last quarter of the 19th century. The items are a sporran and a wedge cap.

"The sporran a traditional part of male Scottish Highland dress, is a pouch that performs the same function as pockets on the pocketless kilt. Made of leather or fur, the ornamentation of the sporran is chosen to complement the formality of dress worn with it. The sporran is worn on a leather strap or chain, conventionally positioned in front of the groin of the wearer". Offered here is Semi-dress sporran which combines the same shape and design as the day-wear sporran and a less formal version of the full-dress sporran. "The basic figure is commonly included with a fur front, leather gusset, three decorated fur tassels with regular or cross-chains, and a leather flap at the top. Celtic or Scottish designs often are featured on the flap and may have pewter badges' decoration to raise the design". Upon our example which measures 17 inches by 7 inches is a silver badge with St. Andrew.  The blue-black wedge cap is maker marked inside is in excellent condition. Upon it is a large, stamped silver badge with St. Andrew on it and the Gallic motto: "Clann Na Gaidheal a Gualidh Chelle". These 2 items are well over 100 years old and in great condition.
