Leather and Wood Shot Pouch - Old Handmade

This old Shot Pouch appears to have been made and used long ago, although its actual age is still a mystery to us. It still contains two small round lead balls of an unknown caliber. From the construction and the condition, I believe it to be a very old pouch that someone has taken the time to carefully restore. The stitching around the side is newer, as is the long leather lace for carrying. The restoration appears to have been very painstakingly done in order to maintain the authenticity of this great piece.

The pouch is made from two pieces of flexible leather, stitched together and attached to a hand carved spout that is wrapped tightly with leather lacing. The wooden stopper is also hand carved. The entire pouch measures 7-1/2 inches long by about 3 inches at the widest point.

Please note: There is an area on one side of the pouch where the leather is split in a small three-way tear. I do not know if this could be gentle restored, but I would assume that is possible. This damage most likely occurred after the original restoration was done. This is a piece that is not only collectible, but can add great authenticity to costumes and re-enactments.

I try to describe the items on this site as accurately as possible; however since most of the items are either antique or at best vintage, due to their age, they are sold in "as is" condition.
