Musketeer's Powder Flask dated 1607
A profusely and well engraved cow horn flask, depicting an armored warrior with a spear about to have conflict with a helmeted "wild man" armed only with a club. Both figures are standing within a landscape and a beautifully rendered sun-in-splendor separating them. The reverse engraved with concentric circles and retaining its original belt hook. The inner curved surface engraved with a monster. Iron mounts are patinated. This is the finest executed flask of this type I have had the privilege to handle in many years.
O.A. 13 3/4"
Width (base) 4 1/2"
Price: $ 4,500-
