18th Century Shot Pouch

Add to Cart:


This is a small leather shot pouch or priming flask based on a surviving example from the 18th century.

A shot pouch was used to carry pistol or musket balls for firelock weapons in the 17th and 18th centuries. A priming flask usually carried a small amount of gun powder to prime the pan on the lock ready for firing.

This one has a turned wooden stopper that fits snuggly into the top of the flask.

It is approx 3" wide and 6" high.
