Hand stitched leather, 9 ¼” length plus the plug. Slender form with a hand-carved spout. The leather secured with two hand forged tacks. The original carved wood stopper. See Neumann p227, top, center for a very similar example lacking the stopper. These were used to carry large shot which was loaded with the ball (“buck and ball”) to increase the effectiveness of the load. Its slender form allowed it to be tucked in the belt or pouch. That it is not a shot container for fowling (shotgunning), is demonstrated by its very limited capacity. It would barely provide four to five charges for a shotgun but enough shot for perhaps 25 buck and ball loads. Wonderful untouched condition and complete.
