Joe Mills Hunting Pouch and Powder Horn Set

The bark tan bag is completely hand sewn. There is a gusset which provides additional room for storage. Edges are bound with leather. There is an internal pocket. The bag is decorated with brass and silver ornaments on the flap and with a vase and vine motif on the body of the pouch. A brass buckle provides for strap adjustment. A vent pick, pan brush and measure made by Joe are attached to the strap. The bag measures 9.5 inches tall by 8 inches wide. The antique horn has been repaired and restored by Mills. After attaching two folky bands on the horn Mills recarved the butt plug and added a turned tip. Old style lead repairs were added to the rear of the horn to take care of some bug damage.
