Floral Border Scabbard

The client of this scabbard requested an integrated period belt with a leather that, without dyes or paints, was light enough to be nearly white, a la the “white belt of knighthood.” I used alum tanned leather, which was used in the medieval era, and produces a very pale hide.

The decorations were tooled and painted. They are based off a decorative floral border of a leaf from the St Alban Psalter.

The sword is an Albion Gaddhjalt with aftermarket engravings. The scabbard is poplar covered with leather.
