A very rare large medieval period decorated leather knife scabbard. 

This item which is a very rare survivor from the period ,has been professionally and fully conserved and is in very soft and supple condition.

It dates to circa 13th-15th century AD, and is in wonderful all over condition .

The original stitching has long since perished in antiquity and there is a tear across the front panel which is very stable and not at all 

obvious and mentioned only for accuracy. 

This item would have originally carried a large knife and been a real statment piece to its owner.

Ex. Blackfriars Excavations in London on the river thames in the 1970s .

As with all of my antiquities and coins this item comes complete with a certificate of authenticity .
