Replica leather purse and belt
Personal accessories, like belts and purses were a way of showing your wealth to other people. This well-made black leather purse is stitched together and closed with a bronze buckle. At the top it has a metal purse bar which would hang from the slim belt which would pass through the loop. Medieval leather only survives in very wet or very dry conditions. Here, very wet is much more likely!
