Fringed Scabbards in the Scottish Highlands
First I must apologise for the lack of images. I used to upload images to this forum through Imageshack who have since decided to effectively charge for their service. I ma looking for further information on fringed scabbards being used in the Scottish Highlands. There is plenty of good iconographic evidence from Ireland for fringed scabbards but from Scotland I have only found two possible examples, one being the slightly dubious Sauvage D'Ecosse woodcut.
I am currently designing/thinking a scabbard for my 15th century highland sword and any further information would be very helpful.
Other than the Sauvage D'Ecosse, here are two other possible fringed scabbards from the Highlands.
Thanks Stephen,
Personally I think it may have been common, but then again ring-hilts don't seem to have crossed over.
