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
