Description

Original dated 19th century American hunting bag. Possibles Bag The bag is made of what I believe to be home tanned goat hide, lined with homespun linen and sewn with heavy thread. It is a  gusset bag with welted seams. The front flap has an embossed square pattern with a black heart sewn on in the center. The heart has the date 1868 hand stitch into it and above that what appears to be initials. There is a smaller pocket on the bag under the flap and it is Linen lined as well. Originally there was a belt tongue under the flap to fasten it down, it is missing but the buckle portion remains. The very old  leather shoulder strap is very dry and delicate. The buckle that it fastens to is hand forged and quite finely made. If you wanted to the strap could be easily replaced with an old belt.  Included is a Shot flask, a powder horn with an adjustable measuring spout, and
brass butt cap and a hand made shot pouch with wooden spout and stopper. It still has shot in it. The Bag is 10" wide x 10" high, horn is 10" long. All parts with fine old patina. As all pouches of this era it is a display piece only,  it would not stand up to any use. I have not seen one of these original bags for sale in 20 years, but this year I found two. The dating and monogram on this one makes it pretty special though. If they could talk, just imagine the stories they might tell.
