The leather used to make this wallet was discovered on the shipwreck of the Metta Catharina, a Russian ship that sank off the Cornish coast in 1786. Perfectly preserved underwater, it is a beautiful example of the Russian tanning technique that could never be replicated anywhere else and is lost to this day.
