Jimmy Allen Hunting Pouch with Antique Powder Horn

This bag was made by Jimmy Allen thirty five or forty years ago. It was purchased and never used. It has been in a private collection. The flap on the bag is bear skin and was once a part of an antique lap robe given to Jimmy by Gary Birch. The strap can be adjusted by means of a series of leather knots (a Birch innovation). Jimmy and Gary were good friends. The attached horn is an antique. It measures 13.5 inches on the outside curve. The bag measures 9 inches by 9 inches. A repurposed antique table knife is attached to the strap. 

$300.00 plus shipping CONUS.
