Jeff Bibb Bag and Horn

A North Carolina pouch and horn set taken from original pieces. The pouch had a wonderful shape that I could not get out of my mind, and I had to make one. The original featured a tooled decoration. Since bark tan leather doesn't tool well, I added an overlaid fringed moon. The interior is lined with linen, and the flap is backed with light deerskin.

The horn is based on another original NC piece that struck a chord. The flare in the beehive base plug of the original was beautiful, and I had to give it a try. The tip is featured on at least three originals in various books. The carved antler measure and coned pan brush were also inspired by original pieces.
