Our leather shop continues to manufacture oak & leather cartridge magazines of all shapes and sizes. These items are made on a bespoke basis with the client choosing the configuration of the partitions, the size of the magazine and the colour of the leather. Our cartridge magazines are made by the same craftsmen who make our gun cases and are constructed and covered with materials which are designed for the product to last for generations.

I think it is very hard for us to date this sort of item, we have been making these cartridge magazines for over 120 years now. One thing you can look at is the trade label in the case. It will perhaps have By Appointment to ... with the name of the member of our Royal Family. This will itself give an indication of the date it was made, assuming it has not been relined and modernised.
