I saw this and almost fell over. I have a shark Winchester so this was right up my alley. It is about 15 years old and made of stingray, also called shagreen. It is hard and so tough it apparently broke several needles during the stitching. This one is black but there was also a blue and a bordeaux made. I couldn’t stop feeling it. I can honestly say I have NEVER enjoyed photographing anything as much as I enjoyed photographing this! What a work of art!
