The period of military resistance to French colonization. Polished brown leather, 2 ½” x 1 5/8” x 3/4” finely stitched, and polished. Workmanship and quality rivaling fine Italian shoes. Enclosing, presumably, sacred script and perhaps organic inclusions. Purchased Christie’s London in the 1980s and the finest example we have seen. On modern leather neck cord for modern wear.
