2018 CLA Live Auction: Hunting Set by Lawrence Fiorillo and Todd Hambrick

This Eighteenth century style pouch and horn are in the homespun frontier style.  The oak tanned cowhide bag measures ten and a half inches long and 5 and a half inches deep.  It has a simple domed metal button closure and an internal pocket. The waxed hemp strap is wide and should make a comfortable carry. 

This horn is perfect for this bag.  It has charming folk art animal figures and a sturdy construction. There is also a powder measure, and a pan brush of antler.  This is a great set that is artfully aged and intentionally primitive. 

Lawrence Fiorillo and Todd Hambrick have created a horn and bag that speak of the frontier folk, plain simple tastes but a demand for function and a subtle sense of whimsy. This would be great with a smooth bore or a plain workmanlike rifle, perfectly at home with a Pennsylvania, Virginia, Kentucky or Southern Mountain gun.

Lawrence and Todd are new artists for the auction.  We hope to see more of their work in the future
