Hi Rick,

I like this one!
As you say above, it is very nice to get the Persian/Omani barrel!

Snaplock,

But the carving here does have feet,...is kneeling.
The wood must be wonderfully hard, to be able to carve in such detail.

It is Most Odd!

Adrian,

A very interesting and rare flask! It has to be from the same area and time as that of Michael and Corrado. Wonderful piece of history!

Dear Fernando,

I was being unrealistic maybe, when I believed that the majority of the collection would be staying together in the hands of Michael's friend.

Good morning Jens, and Happy Easter!

The loop on the leather-covered scabbard may have lasted as long as the average scabbard.
By this I mean that if (In an organised day and age) scabbards became...

Jens,

Is there any accounting for the 'fish tail' and the loop being always found together? It is interesting that loops do not appear to have been used on scabbards with no fish tail. I wonder...

Fernando,

To quote you;
"Just think of it as being genuine Spanish barrels for exports, receiving a French inspection countermark at arrival ".

This may be Very close to the truth!

I believe you are right; That Laborde did not make the barrels. Most gunsmiths bought in their barrels and I see this as most likely in this case.
