This has a comparatively simple Celtic design embossed on the front of a leather cover. It is based on a triskele (or ‘triskelion’ meaning three legs). The mix of brown tones enhances the circular design and makes it much more interesting. The back of the cover shows a plain, uncoloured geometric diamond pattern, accentuated by small depressions where the lines intersect. It’s not a Celtic design.

The George Bain Collection has a number of objects that weren’t designed or made by George Bain, his family or his students. This one was purchased by the museum as part of a Heritage Lottery Fund Collecting Cultures grant. It is a comparison for the leather work done by Bain and his associates.
