Product Description

A really nice pair of mid-19th century Nepalese Gun Powder Flask and Ammunition Case in good condition.

The heavy and rugged Powder flask is made of horn with white metal and brass bands, decorated with scrolling floral vine designs. The turned bone pouring-spout has a swivelling brass end-cap. It is complete with both of its side-mounted tinned brass suspension-loops. The design is typically Ottoman in style. The horn section would have had affixed decoration, but these have been lost or removed at the time. The Ammunition Pouch Case is book shaped, made out of brass with silvered white metal. The lid is where the spine would be. The decoration is made of embossed geometric scrolling. There are 2 bosses, one on the lid and another on the front. The bosses have a red coral and turquoise cabochon, respectively. It has similar suspension loops and a very soft rope, made of braided hair, which acts as the sling. Condition is very good.

Size flask: 10 x 7 x 28.5 cm (4 x 2 ¾ x 11 ¼ inches)
Size case: 14.5 x 4.5 x 9.5 inches (5 ¾ x 1 ¾ x 4 ¾ inches)
Weight: 1140 g
